JUNE 18 - 30

From Grace to Glory International Min. Inc. is conducting a short term mission to Kenya. Join us for a 13 day mission to Litein and Kipsimbol, S.W. Kenya with the Rev. Stanley, Caroline Melek, and Cathy Harrell. We’ll be visiting and ministering in the Glory Bible-Believing Church that Rev. Melek established when he lived there. It’s an great opportunity to take part in healing prayer, blessing families, teaching a seminar and conducting a revival. There’s nothing more rewarding to participate in what God is doing across the world. Worshiping together is an unforgettable experience.

This area is located in the beautiful tea highlands just above the Great Rift Valley. We’ll visit a tea factory and get to know the local life of our brothers and sisters in Christ. Staying in their homes and eating home cooked meals will immerse you in the rhythms of Kenyan life. At the end of the trip we’ll be taking a short 2 1/2 day safari to Maasai Mara. It is the premier game preserve featured in the nature shows. It’s an unforgettable experience.

Cost: $3,300, airfare deposit of $1665, due by April 1. Checks preferred, credit cards accepted. The flight is out of Tallahassee to Miami to London, Heathrow to Nairobi. Cathy will be receiving the team in Nairobi. There is a team from Harris Chapel UMC, Ft. Lauderdale. A seminar will be held at a later date for training. A packet of travel and itinerary info is available upon request.

This after-school program teaches art skills to students who do not always have access to the arts in their schools. We are always looking for volunteers to help as classroom assistants, floaters, or just as extra hands.

We are also looking for teachers who are interested in teaching an art discipline. We meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:00 -6:00pm at the Oliver Hill Community Center throughout the school year. No art skills are necessary to participate!

Contact Justin Barfield at for more information.



As a child, the excitement that came with the visit of an ice cream truck was palpable. Children would race to find any pair of shoes once that jingle rang from down the street. We want to bring back the joy of playing outside and community engagement. Instead of feeding sugar cravings, we want to feed minds with creativity. With the help of the aRt-V, a mobile arts studio, we believe we can achieve just that! A recreational vehicle has been donated for this vision. The aRt-V is a mobile arts studio designed to bridge the gap between the arts and the community. We are looking for safe, reliable drivers to transport the aRt-V to offsite events and outreach opportunities. Additionally, we need people willing to accompany drivers, hang out and have fun in these communities.
