8/14/09 Body of Christ Cares QUICK UPDATE

Last Saturday we took urban kids fishing – For some it was their first time. We had a wonderful time! Thanks Chuck and Angela for letting us fish at your place…

Body of Christ works together in Ford Heights – weekly update 8/5/09

On July 25 partnered with a Christian men’s Bible Study to help empower Christ Temple #2 Church have a community outreach in Ford Heights, IL. Rev. Futrell is the pastor and has a big heart for the community. Pictured is Rich Van Til with Body of Christ Cares’ inflatible bouncer. Also pictured is a snow cone machine that we borrowed for this event, the Taste of Reconciliation, and also at the homeless shelter – We would love to have someone buy us a snow cone machine for us to share with the “Body of Christ” to empower groups to demonstrate God’s love in practical ways to their community

On July 26 we had our 7th annual Taste of Reconciliation We had about 550 attend and had an absolutely wonderful time! A special thank you to the Building Bridges Committee of Living Springs Community Church and all those that helped to make this event possible. Soon we will have a special post with pictures and video of this event.

Special need: This Saturday (August 7) I am taking some urban children fishing – I need fishing poles! Please contact me (708-539-893nine) if you have one we can borrow or if you are willing to buy one (Walmart has them for about $15). I am also taking kids on September 29 and might need more volunteers.
