Summer 2022 Boat Build & Test Float

Service Opportunity for The Brethren Workshop

1 John 4:21 "And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister."

The Brethren Workshop got out of the shop at the end of October and did its first outreach project. We were blessed to build this ramp for our brother and sister. The students that helped used some of the skills they learned in the shop to build the ramp. Berkey Church of the Brethren paid for the materials through The Service and Social Action Fund.

Thank you to all who participated! To God be the glory!
