My Church Came to Me tells the story of how Margaret Schreve connected her church to her local community of need. As children’s minister at Houston River Baptist Church in Sulfur, Louisiana, Margaret had a lot of experience working with “church kids,” however when she began inviting kids from the community she became overwhelmed. Margaret remembered her experiences serving on a mission trip with Graffiti 2 and so she reached out for help.
