This is going to be a big weekend at New Season. We are hosting our first ever, Community Outreach Weekend where we will distribute food and clothing to those in need from our community. We will have a free car wash on Saturday morning and bounce houses for the kids.
We are trying to make a statement here…do you get it? “WE CARE!” We are not only sharing the words, “We Care” but we are taking action to show it! Much hard work and generosity has gone into this event. Eric Amos, our Mission’s Pastor has spent many hours organizing and working to make this event happen. Christie Graham and Kim Kornblatt have headed up the food and clothing donation/set up and they have had help from many of you. I would not want to name names for fear of leaving someone out but I know that Ellen Matrangos, Vicki Head and Sharon Humphries were instrumental in getting things put together on Thursday. So many of you brought in clothing and purchased food to be used…THANK YOU ALL! It’s not over though, we still need hundreds of you to volunteer this weekend and help us as we minister to our community. We have no idea how many people to expect but I think it will be a ton! We want to be ready!
We are asking all volunteers to be at the church at 3 pm on Friday to be informed on what we need you to do. We will open from 5 pm until 8 pm to the public on Friday. On Saturday, we are asking volunteers to be at church by 8:30 am and we will open from 9 am until 4 pm on Saturday. If you cannot stay the entire time, that’s fine. Please just come and give us as much time serving as you can. We need you! All of you!
Our students will head up the free carwash on Saturday morning. We will need volunteers to man the bounce houses for the kids on Saturday. We need greeters, security, sorters for food/clothes, people at the food tables and clothing table, and people to walk around greeting people and offering assistance. We need people to collect information cards from those filling out the cards. We also need people to walk around distributing “Over the Wall,” my testimony in book form.
Our weekend will climax on Sunday as I share my testimony in both the 9:30 and 11:15 am services. It will be an exciting day at New Season as people hear my story and realize that Jesus offers hope and life change to EVERYONE! I can’t wait, I am confident that many people are going to accept Christ. This is a great opportunity for you to invite and bring lost family members, friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc… so they can hear me share about my dramatic life change and how they can experience the same thing! Be here and bring someone with you!
As you can see there is plenty to be done this weekend. Please come and help us on Friday, Saturday, or both days. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to be Jesus to men, women, boys and girls who need Him! He needs our hands, feet and mouths…will you allow Him to use yours?
