MSM Christ's Hand's Retreat

Twenty youth gathered to serve the Ankeny and DSM communities for three days of service this July for our Christ’s Hands Outreach Retreat.

Every July we invite youth entering grades 7-9 to join us as we work to be the hands of Christ in our community. We ended our time together with a friendly competition of meal packaging at Meals from the Heartland.
