Around 10 years ago, our church building would get covered with gang graffiti every once in a while. While we did not have the resources to address the gangs directly, those graffiti marks we knew were God calling us to action. We knew that if we invested in the very young people of our neighborhood, then they would be less likely to turn to gangs for a sense of belonging later on in life. So we reached out to our neighbors and began Venture Club. We invite kids from Elementary to Middle school for a time of fun and games, food and learning the Bible. When the weather is good we play soccer, volleyball and the like outdoors and then head in for some Bible instruction and food.
We meet every first and third Wednesday of the month at 6:30 PM.
