Arborlawn is excited to be a partner church this summer for Project Transformation, a new and worthy ministry to the Central Texas Conference. Project Transformation provides summer camp opportunities for underserved children and families in our area while also providing leadership development for young United Methodists in college.
Here is how Project Transformation describes what they do on their website:
“Every year, hundreds of college age young adults commit a summer or year of their lives to serve and build relationships with children and youth from low-income communities, live in intentional community, and explore a call to ministry and service. Through the power of relationships and by leveraging a unique collaboration with local churches and community partners, Project Transformation equips young adults for leadership in the church and the world, empowers children to achieve their God-given potential, and supports churches in being in ministry with their neighbors.”
You can learn more about this great ministry at www.projecttransformation.org.
