food, clothes & 3.1 miles

This Saturday is our 2nd Saturday FREE COMMUNITY MEAL and CLOTHES CLOSET and another opportunity to demonstrate the love of God to our community by meeting needs and sharing Jesus with the people we meet.  

Pass the word to those in need.  Volunteer and be there at 8:30am.  Donate clothes.  Pray that lives will be changed by the grace of God.

Matthew 25:35-36  (NLT)
35 For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. 36 I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.'

Let me also remind you that we will be honoring LEON WHITE this Sunday at church.  Wear your favorite Christian or church t-shirt.  This is a surprise for Leon.  He recently learned that he has bone cancer, and Leon has been part of our church family for several years.

So what does 3.1 miles have to do with this Sunday or our outreaches?  Each year through a partnership with our Dream Center and Citizens Against Family Violence we put on the HOPE4THEHOMELESS5k run/walk that will take place on Saturday, March 2nd at 10am.  Your help is needed to have this a success event to raise money to helpless the homeless in our community.  Attached of this post are 2 links.  The first is a sponsor form as we are asking businesses and individuals to support this event with a donation.  Please pass this on to people you know would like to help.  The second attachment is the form to register to run or walk the 3.1 miles (5k) of the event.  Would you consider being a part by walking or volunteering?  Working together we will make a difference in this community.

There ya go.  Help us serve our community.  There are plenty of people who are hungry, hurting or homeless who need to see and hear about the hope that Jesus gives.  I look forward to seeing you this weekend as we worship on Sunday at 10:10am, serve on Saturday and prepare for even more impact in this community.  See you soon!

With GOD as my guide,

Pastor Michael Harrison
-- James 1:5
