It was a warm week in July when Calvary Church's 5th & 6th grade youth came into the inner city as part of their missions trip.  They sponsored and provided the manpower for a neighborhood hotdog cook out.  It was wonderful seeing them mix with our neighbors and even take time and pray with them.  When the rain came, they quickly brought everything indoors and continued serving our neighbors. 

The students were also a great help to us with numerous projects around our ministry center.  They worked hard and accomplished much!  The students also helped us with our Wild Wednesday program that week.

For the past several summers, Amway Corporation has sponsored a neighborhood carnival right here at Urban Family Ministries.  Amway sends their summer interns to provide the volunteer assistance needed to help things run smoothly.  The weather was terrific and many people, both children and parents, enjoyed the afternoon fun!

Summer Horse Camp.  We partner with Roanoke Ranch in Lowell.  The kids love the horses and the peaceful surroundings.

St. Marks Lutheran Church youth helped us with a neighborhood clean up as part of their urban service project.  It was a hot July day....90+ degree heat.  They worked hard nonetheless....and the neighbors were pleased.

Our latest purchase . . . Van #3.  The kids are happy to pose for you.


The task of reaching the children and families of the inner-city for Jesus is too big for only a handful of people. That's why God gave us each other. Many faithful partners work with us to see the Lord's mission at Urban Family Ministries come to reality.  Won't you join us?
