Connecting Columbia Union Seventh-day Adventists

September 2023

Charleston Boulevard members Christian Baker, Destiny Goad, Serenity Goad and Ellana Garcia play a board game together at the church’s community center.

Two years ago, a group of Charleston (W.Va.) Boulevard church members, organized by Audrey Hunt and Gary Riley, met to brainstorm and plan community outreach programs. During the meeting, tears and discouragement turned to hope, as they began to dream of new people visiting and joining their church. They purposed to make prayer a priority.
