In mid-April, Tennessee River Baptist Association sent a team of 11 to Christ Fellowship Community Church on the Tohono O’odham reservation in Arizona.
Director of Missions Dwight Everett explained that Christ Fellowship Community is the only evangelical witness in the area. The association decided to try to help save the 12-member congregation and went to replace the 28-year-old church roof (something the small church could have never completed or afforded on its own).
The two-woman and nine-man team from Calvary Baptist Church, Agape Baptist Church, Center Point Baptist Church, Ridgedale Baptist Church and New Prospect Baptist Church, all of Scottsboro, and Harmony Baptist Church, Fackler, also took quilts and Vacation Bible School (VBS) supplies to the reservation.
Tennessee River Association plans to take a VBS team to the reservation in the future.
