We provide a meal every 3rd Saturday to the students and staff of the Honey Brook Youth Center. Contact Pat Columbia for more information on the youth center. Or contact Linda Good for more information on the meal.
The mission of the Honey Brook Youth Center is simple:"Kids come here to play games, hang out, and learn about the Lord Jesus Christ. HBYC is dedicated to helping kids grow spiritually, socially, and emotionally. It is our prayer that lives will be enriched and that young people come to know the saving power of our Lord Jesus Christ as we serve together at HBYC"
We meet at the youth center: 4610 Horseshoe Pike Honey Brook, PA 19344, around 5:45PM on the third Saturday of every month.
