Messiah’s Mission Fest Helps Troubled Youth
Messiah in Weatherford held their annual Mission Fest on Oct. 10. The proceeds from the event went to benefit Crossroads Youth Ministries of Parker County, a faith-based non-profit organization working with youth “trapped in a dysfunctional environment.”
Messiah’s Mission Fest raised almost $6,000 for Crossroads! Read more about Messiah’s Mission Fest and Crossroads here.
