March 2023 HOPE ANNOUNCEMENTS:
- Thank you: Special thanks to all of the volunteers and blood donors that made our February Blood Drive a success. Because of you Red Cross was able to collect 34 pints of blood. 102 lives will be impacted as a result of your sacrifice. Mark your calendars. Our next drive will be held on August 12, 2023.
- Volunteers Needed: We are in need of volunteers to serve and have our first with our neighbors in Concord NC who utilize services from Opportunity House on Thursday March 23, 2023 (6PM-8PM). Opportunity House is a unique day shelter that focuses on meeting the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs of people experiencing homelessness in Cabarrus County. Please Contact Mike Dames @ 704-724-2362 or firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot.
- HOPE ww Community Suppers: In honor of Dr. King, in 2023 each month, we are asking all of our members and friends to consider hosting a meal in your home where you intentionally invite people who are different from you to break bread with you. The purpose for this activity is to help us all to become intentional at practicing radical hospitality and building relationships with people from all walks of life. Please click here for ideas on how you can achieve this.
- Service is defined as the act of helping or doing work for someone. Thank you to the over 100 volunteers that came out to support the MLK Day of service on Saturday. Your acts of service have met the basic needs of families, individuals and children in our community. A special thank you goes to our brother Tony Hill who inspired us and called us to greater heights of service to our community and our God. Are you a bucket or a vase?
