First Baptist Church, Russellville, on missioncomment (0)

September 8, 2011

Richard Parker, minister of youth and education for First Baptist Church, Russellville, led a team of 30 students and 11 adults to Rochester, N.Y., July 9–15 to work with Partners in Community Development, a nonprofit organization that provides on-site activities and services to apartment communities.

This was the 21st consecutive year a team from the Franklin Baptist Association church traveled to the area.

The team worked in The Pines of Perinton, a multihousing area in Fairport with about 1,000 residents. It hosted a day camp and a night camp with a hot dog supper for 120 participants. Two children accepted Christ.

About 15 children have parents who participated in the day camp when it first started, Parker said.

Plans for a team to return next year are already under way.
