Chattanooga 2015 Mission Trip

Chattanooga, TN:  July 2015

This year 33 team members headed for Chattanooga in the big, black bus for a week of VBS, construction work, and befriending some kids in the community of East Chattanooga.  Partnering with Hope for the Inner City, our VBS team held a "top secret" club  at the Carver Community Center, while our 2 construction teams built a deck with a ramp off the home of a disabled woman, and sanded and repainted a community center and their community playground equipment.  It was hot! 

Two days before we left for Chattanooga, this community was dealt a severe blow.  A terrorist attack at the Navy Operational Support Center & Marine Corps Reserve Center took the lives of four US Marines and one Navy sailor.

With the help of www.newyorksaysthankyou.org, who supplied us with the wooden Stars of Hope, our team was able to paint and place our messages of support, comfort, and hope at the site and in the nearby trees lining the  sidewalk.  The stars will eventually be given to the family members.
