Our Week at the North Charleston DreamCenter

We just got back from a trip to the Seacoast DreamCenter at North Charleston. We took our older teens and a few of our college students and spent four days helping and volunteering. It was an incredible experience, and I’ll try to share about a few of our experiences over the next week here on the blog. Our goal was to simply be servants, to help in any way possible and to see what we could learn from them about reaching our community. We spent the week doing a wide variety of work. Here’s a video about what the DreamCenter is doing.

Here are a few of our experiences from the week.

  • We did painting and cleaning work around the DreamCenter
  • We helped pack and organize backpacks for their back-to-school bash
  • We toured Water Missions International and learned about their ministry
  • We did landscaping work and built a new walkway (in 100 degree heat :-))
  • We helped with their food pantry, clothes closet, and free medical clinic
  • Some of our group helped lead worship for their celebrate recovery ministry
  • And we were able to visit an assisted living facility and minister to the people there
  • And of course we had a little down time at the beach
It was a busy week, but it was also powerful. I wish everyone in our church could hear our youth share each night about what they were learning and how God was working in their lives. I’m so proud of our group and I love seeing God really transform their hearts. I’m seeing a passion develop in them for service and for reaching others. It’s amazing to visit a ministry and church where so many people are passionate and serving and volunteering. We met so many people and they were a huge blessing to us. They truly are making a difference in their community. My prayer is that we can have the same type of Kingdom impact here in the Twin Counties.
