On April 24, over 100 Temple members served our community in the name of Jesus during Released. We had seven different projects: Disaster Relief Mud-out, Bethel School, Senior Yardwork 1-3, Homebound visits and Rolling Hills. Thanks to all who came out to serve. Special thanks go out to our project coordinators: Loy Seal, Woodie Cooper, Bob Myers, Dustin Alexander, Tim McCarthy, Dale Oden, and John Nugent.

The team of 13 worked all afternoon in the home of a family affected by the flooding in mid-March.

In addition, they had the chance to encourage and pray with the couple, who are members of Firs t Baptist, Schwartz.
