The project engages people from the ENBC congregation in mission projects in the community. All ages will be participating – with those age 10 and younger being accompanied by an adult.

Mission Week “is designed to introduce opportunities for all of us to serve our Coweta county community in the name of Jesus from building projects, feeding the hungry, to assisting the outreach organizations like Restored and One Roof,” church member June Harris said.

Volunteers are welcome to participate “for one or two days or the entire week,” Harris said. “You won't want to miss out on sharing Christ together with us.”
