High School Youth from Christ Our Shepherd Lutheran Church left July 8 for a week-long mission trip to Franklin, N.C. where 30 percent of the people do not have enough to eat. The group will work daily with CareNet, a food pantry, and on weekends with Backpack Food Ministry. They will also do renovation projects for their hosts, Life Church.
