Sulphur Youth Group working around the city

SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) -

This weekend, one group of teens in Sulphur are trading in time soaking up the sun for hard work and labor as they participate in the city's first 'Weekend of the Cross'.  

Over the weekend, the youth group from the Henning Memorial United Methodist Church in Sulphur, are working at four different sites in the city, fixing and in some cases building things that residents need. 

Their projects include painting bedrooms, replacing boards, fixing porches and one of the biggest projects, demolishing an existing wheelchair ramp and building another.  

The youth group identified the four sites by talking with members of the church, the city and the council on aging to see where help was most needed.  

Participants in the weekend say this opportunity allows them to see how God works through them to help others and say that with this being the first time the weekend is happening in Sulphur, they only hope it gets bigger and better in the future. 

All of the projects at the four sites will be completed by Saturday night.   

See more from one of the work sites and hear from these teenagers on later editions of 7News.
