Work Weekend at Camp Marannook
Come join a team from Briarwood's G&C class as we serve Camp Marannook by helping them get ready for a great summer camp. The trip will be free, except for the cost of gas and food on the road, plus a little bit of sweat! We will leave from Briarwood on Friday and return on Sunday afternoon. We will work all day Saturday while enjoying a time of teaching from their director "Mr. Charles" in the evening. We will work hard, yet certainly be refreshed spiritually! After attending church with the Marannook staff, we will return to Birmingham. Make plans to join us! You'll be glad you did!
Sign up to help in Sunday School!
