Micah Program students partnered with New City Fellowship for a service and work day Sept. 14. More than 50 Micahs signed up to join with New City Fellowship crews at seven different sites in the inner-city of St. Louis.

Following a pot-luck breakfast with the other work crews, Micahs worked alongside residents renovating a north city home damaged in last year's floods, preparing a north-side community garden for the coming winter, clearing the yards of two elderly widows, organizing a free store and more.
