Church Without Walls- September 29, 2013

Where:  Surrounding Communities around Church of Christ Uniting & Fellowship Hall of Church of Christ Uniting, Kingston

When:  Sunday, September 29, 2013 at 10AM

Who:  All congregation members, family members, friends, and anyone in the community who would like to help others in the community.   All ages are welcome and childcare will be provided.

Church without Walls is exactly that; participating in church on Sunday outside of the building by helping others.  There will be no worship service inside the Church of Christ Uniting building September 29th.  Instead, we will be a church out in the surrounding communities* involved in hands on mission projects.  It will help us build fellowship among our church members and community.  The projects that have been chosen and the people we will be helping in the community will prove to be a faith-building experience.
