On Friday, December 4th, Exemplify’s Devotional Channel will be asking the question, “How can we give back this Christmas season?” Link up to Christmas Compassion Carnival and tell us how your family plans on spreading the gospel of the good news this season.
This is what I’ll be doing:
City of Refuge
City of Refuge outreach trip this coming Saturday to Atlanta, GA. You need to be at the church Saturday morning NO LATER THAN 7AM. Please dress casually and warmly.
Saturday will involve our participation in one of their Super Saturdays for children at City of Refuge. These are children who are bused in from the surrounding housing projects. There will be lots of kids in need of attention — some in need of nothing more than hugs & smiles and comfortable laps to sit on. Some will want to just talk to someone because they don’t get much of that at home. Others will want to color and draw. You can jump in there and just participate with them. Then there will be all kinds of indoor sports activities for them that morning. By the way, it will all be done inside in very nice facilities. At some point in the morning we will join them for a kids service conducted by their children’s pastor and the team there. This will be followed by lunch preparations by our team. Once lunch is ready, we will serve it to the children. We should be back in Athens no later than 4PM if not before.
