tn Homeless Outreach wide tIf you were a part of our March homeless outreach event, you will recall what a truly blessed event it was for all present.  We are inviting our church family to join us as we return to CCNV Shelter on May 25 to minister to the homeless.
We will host a worship service that will include praise and worship and a sermon.  We will also eat lunch and fellowship with the residents, and then distribute free items to them.
We will leave Metro after the 11:00 a.m. service.  Transportation will be provided.  We will also provide directions for those who choose to carpool.  CCNV is located at 425 2nd St NW, Washington, DC 20001.
We are encouraging our members to support our ministry!  There are many ways that you can contribute!  We are looking for volunteers to help with set-up, serving, fellowshipping with residents, and clean-up.  We are also looking for musicians (pianist, guitarist, drummer), singers and members to assist with various aspects of the worship service.   If you're interested in helping, please complete our volunteer form
We are also requesting contributions of the following: rolls of toilet paper and cases of bottled water.  These items can be placed in the containers found in the Fellowship Hall.  The deadline for donations is Sabbath, May 18.
We are looking forward to this outreach and hope to see see many of you there.  We encourage everyone to wear our "Prayer, Love, Service" t-shirts.  Please see Melissa Andrews if you need a t-shirt.

I'm extremely blessed and grateful for all that I have learned as I grow steadily in the Word. The more we know His Word and the more we are in His Word, the better we can respond to darkness. I'm excited as I find myself becoming filled with light and being able to shine some of that light onto others. With God's grace and mercy, I continue to aim to be a doer and not just a hearer of the Word. I strive to do more than to just listen to sermons. I strive to be a sermon! :-)
