Youth engage in risk-taking mission


The combined youth program of Atlanta, Ebenezer, Mclean and Waynesville is looking to make a "Day of Change!"

Looking to serve with their hands and feet, the youth are embarking on making a change in the life of a single parent family in McLean.

The work day, which begins at 6 a.m. and will run until 6 p.m. includes the following activities:

  • Replace and rebuild roof
  • Trim trees/yard work
  • Scrape and paint exterior
  • Repair wood siding
  • Clean interior and shampoo carpets
  • Install new exterior door
The projected budget for the Day of Change is $8,000, which persons are stepping out in faith that God will provide. For more information on how you can help, visit the Olympia Christian Youth Ministry website for links to sign up if you wish to volunteer. Online donations can be made at the website or by sending a check, payable to OCYM, P. O. Box 70, Waynesville, IL  61778.  Persons are also asked to pray for the youth and adults that will be tackling this project.
