As part of the celebration, the Service and Missions Team served cheese and other dishes made from goat’s milk, and gave attendees the opportunity to “get up-close and personal” with visiting baby goat, Beatrice, owned by Joel and Arvil Scott of Otto.

Team member Nick Potts, who visited the Heifer International ranch with the First Presbyterian youth group as a teen, explained why goats are so important in helping the hungry and relieving poverty.
