Youth group performs and pitches in


On June 13, One Voice - 30 young people and five chaperones from Christ Church United Methodist of Louisville, Kentucky - gave an outstanding performance at Black Mountain United Methodist Church to benefit the Swannanoa Valley Christian Ministry Capital Campaign “Plans to Give Hope and a Future” to build four duplexes to house homeless children and their mothers.

The members also did quite a bit of work at the ministry and elsewhere. On June 13, they visited the ministry and did yard work. They worked in the food pantry and clothes closet and organized the ministry’s old files in storage. They also deep-cleaned the ministry’s homeless shelter at First Baptist Church Black Mountain, and did yard work there.

On June 14, they attended the open table at Black Mountain United Methodist Church and did general cleaning at a couple of Swannanoa Valley Christian Ministry client homes.

The One Voice handbell choir gave a separate performance and did general cleaning at the Marjorie McCune Center in Black Mountain. The group comes to the area every two to three years to serve and perform.
