Students from four churches within the Heart of Texas Baptist Network are participating in Project Sweat this week. Southside Baptist Church, First Baptist Church of Brownwood, First Baptist Church of Early, and Coggin Avenue Baptist Church have all sent students to this annual project to help homeowners in need, according to Austin McIntosh, this year’s Student Ministry Coordinator for the Network.Project Sweat uses an application process to find homeowners who need repairs to their property that they cannot do or have done themselves. Students from area churches gather each morning at 6:30 for breakfast and head out to one of four job sites to paint, clean up debris, and make repairs to structures of those in need.
Project Sweat runs from the opening rally at one of the participating churches through Thursday of that week. This year, more than 80 students and their adult helpers are participating.
