Called by God to be the heart, voice, hands and feet of Christ where the Spirit leads us.
On Friday, August 22, and Saturday, August 23, Tuckahoe is sending teams of eight volunteers to work with Habitat for Humanity in Richmond. For those of you who are interested in serving one or two days in our own community, this is a great way to hone those volunteer construction skills. And, when you gather eight or more Tuckahoe members, you are sure to have a fun day even while breaking a sweat! Please call Nancy Millsaps at 288-0996, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in volunteering for this local mission effort.
A happy and exciting Vacation Bible School week was held July 14 – 18 where 57 children learned about the Glory of God and the Wonders of his World through story telling, music, crafts, recreation, cooking and outreach. The week concluded on Friday with a fun assembly, where families were in attendance and watermelon was served to all! Over 90 youth and adults had wonderful experiences in helping with preparations, or working with the children in attendance during “Workshop of Wonders”, where everyone imagined, built, grew, worked, and walked with God! Mark your calendars for next year’s Vacation Bible School, July 20-24, 2014–”G-Force: God’s Love in Action!”

Our 2014 Mission Trip is completed. Twenty-five youth and adults traveled to Hazard, KY for the week of June 21-28 to work, once again, with ASP. The three Tuckahoe teams worked on homes in need of repairs and improvement during the week and shared meals and devotional time with church groups from two other states. This mission work is part of our continuing effort to implement our mission statement: “Called by God to be the heart, voice, hands and feet of Christ, where the Spirit leads us”, in our immediate area and with a further reach as well. The team wishes to thank everyone for their prayers and cards during the week they were in Kentucky. Stay tuned for more Outreach opportunities coming later this summer and this fall!
