Last month the Intermountain District's newest church plant, Midtown Church in Boise, sent a small group to Gooding Desert Hills Nazarene to remodel their youth room. The group spent Friday cleaning and painting, then Saturday installing new flooring, adding more coats of paint, and remodeling with new furniture. On Sunday, Midtown’s small group was able to stay and worship with the congregation and celebrate the work that was completed. We love to see churches serving churches and our new church plant starting with a missional mindset!
