school-supply-drive-metro-webThe Back-2-School season is well underway – kids and parents everywhere are shopping for new clothes, shoes, school supplies, lunch boxes…the list goes on.  Last year our church blessed the students and families of Ridgecrest and GE Peters Elementary Schools through the distribution of nearly 400 backpacks filled with school supplies. Let’s out-do ourselves, Metro! This year let’s reach MORE STUDENTS and give away MORE SUPPLIES than before.

P6070023As we set up on Sabbath, June 7, for the clothing drive at Ridgecrest Elementary School, I wondered if our supplies would be enough for the families that were coming.  I watched in anticipation as our volunteers folded and organized the women's clothes, the men's clothes, baby clothes, shoes, toys, toiletries, bread, food, etc.

omaris-groupOn Sabbath June 7, I was the team lead for a small group of volunteers who participated in the Beyond the Walls “Clean Up Hyattsville” outreach activity.  It first appeared that our activity was going to be a wash, because when we got to Huerich Park, our assigned location, we couldn’t find the park ranger.  We were supposed to meet her to get our cleaning supplies (gloves, bags, etc.).  What to do?  We “radioed” back in to “headquarters” (Melissa and Vonric) for support, but while we were waiting on them to track down the ranger, we decided that we would complete this outreach on our own!  If we couldn’t find supplies, we would get our own supplies.

prayer-and-fastingSabbath April 5 was a memorable day of good deeds, songs, prayer and praise, as we gathered with a special sense of purpose. While most of Metro's members went out to serve the community as part of our special project called "Beyond the Walls”, a small group of worshipers remained at the church in fasting and prayer. The songs "Bringing in the Sheaves" and "Seeking the Lost" took on an extra special meaning.

metrokidzThrough the Beyond the Walls effort  on April 5, I was blessed with the opportunity to minister with the Children's Church team led by Tamara Sam.  When the children arrived at the MAC, they were assigned to different workstations to create beautiful handmade cards for the residents of Chillum Oaks Senior Living Center.  After simple instructions, the children quickly slipped into creative mode and out came the glitter, glue, stickers, markers and paper!  They were all very intentional about making sure their masterpieces displayed beautiful images and encouraging words.

On April 5, we were blessed to have the opportunity to serve many in the community through our Beyond the Walls outreach.  Among those served were some of our members who have mobility challenges.  This project was led by Elder Cunningham who divided us into three teams.  Each team had approximately five members and we were assigned 2 visits.  One of the members I visited lives at an assisted living facility; the other we visited at her residence.

food-line3On April 5, I particiated in Metro's community-wide service day titled “Beyond the Walls”.  The day took a break from traditional church service, within the walls of the divine sanctuary, and stepped out into the community to truly exhibit God’s hands and feet. Of the several activities that took place in Washington, DC and the Hyattsville area, I served at the homeless feeding in Franklin Square Park.

tn RMH Pic 2On Sabbath, April 5, more than ten eager individuals made sack lunches for the families of Ronald McDonald House as a part of Metropolitan’s first Beyond the Walls outreach day.  Ronald McDonald House serves as a “home-away-from-home” for the parents of hospitalized children. Parents are able to stay at the House for little or no cost, and have access to private bedrooms, home-cooked meals, and an array of support services.

I was excited to get involved in our April 5 outreach program - Beyond the Walls - and I chose to work with the Random Acts of Kindness group.  There were about 19 people in the group I was assigned to, and we further separated in smaller groups.  My "groupmates" were Samantha Warren and Yolande (Ricque) Sinclair.  We worked at one of the traffic lights near the Prince George's mall.  When the traffic light turned red, we walked to the stopped cars and said, "We are from the Metropolitan Seventh-day Adventist Church and we are here to just share a little love.  Would you like a bottle of water or granola bar or lollipops for the kids?"
