Wildwood Christian Church will join the LOVEtheLOU team for a weekend in St. Louis City. Our focus will be threefold. We will begin and complete physical work projects. These will be connected to LOVEtheLOU's mission and will further their work in the city. Secondly, we will build relationships with key neighbors and work to begin new relationships in the Kingshighway West Neighborhood. Finally, we will focus on spiritual renewal. This will be for each person who is arriving for the mission trip and also for those already living in the city.
