Shady Creek Mobile Home Park Ministry
The ministry at Shady Creek began in December 2003 as a project of the Harold Watson Sunday School class and was adopted as a mission project of WBC in the spring of 2004. WBC volunteers lead services each Sunday from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. with classes at the same time for preschool and school age children.
Through the years additional activities have been provided for children at Shady Creek such as after-school tutoring, educational field trips, VBS, and sack lunches at noon on Saturdays and Sundays. WBC men enlarged the pre-school room to provide much needed space for the large number of children who were attending. The WBC food pantry and clothes closet have also served the Shady Creek residents through the years. WBC volunteers provide a Christmas dinner each year on the Sunday before Christmas. At Christmas time volunteers tour the park singing Christmas carols and distributing fruit baskets to the residents.
The park has recently gone into foreclosure and many residents have moved out. Services were canceled in fall 2016. We thank God for the opportunity to serve the residents of Shady Creek.
