This is the 14th year of Front Street’s Buckner Mission Man Triathlon which raises money for the missions of our church.  Approximately 400 athletes participate in the triathlon at Lake Cammack Park & Marina in Burlington.  Since 2003, this event has raised over $510,000 for missions!  The great success of the BMMT is due in large part to the tremendous support we get from YOU – our Front Street volunteers - on the day of the event.  How can you help?  Mark July 29 (6-10 a.m.) on your calendar and make plans to join us!  We are looking for volunteers of all ages in the following areas: body marking, registration, refreshments, directing course traffic, manning water stations and the finish line.  Prefer not to get up early?  Come help with site restoration.     For more information please contact Joanna Strelow at joannacouperstrelow@gmail.com or call the church office.
