M.A.D. in Warwick - Ecumenical Youth Projects

Why are these kids M.A.D.?   Because they Make A Difference!

M.A.D. is an ecumenical group based out of Warwick Reformed Church-
Tweens and Youth team up for local mission efforts...MAD is a year-round commitment;
not just one week during the summer.

If you know youth who would like to get involved,
or college age/ adults available to chaperone,

Please contact Beth Verblaauw at wrcfriends@yahoo.com
or call the church office for more information 845-986-4517.

More hands = More work that can be done!
