Through our local missions ministry, Christ Church partners with a number of active organizations, and so we never run out of events, serving opportunities (needs!), stories, and updates to tell you about.
In the midst of this steady flurry of activity, it is crucial that we constantly remember what we are really doing when we engage and support local ministries.
Every one of them help foster undeniably powerful life-change, brought about through the love and restoration of Jesus.
By joining in the work of these ministries, we get to be a part of the one grand, beautiful story by which Jesus heals our world, and we in some way become parts of individual stories of real people, even if we don’t know them.
In this light, let me invite you to yet another serving opportunity–yes, another event–where you can learn more about the individual stories of women’s lives changed through our partner ministry, A Way Out:
Just come have dinner with us on Thursday, October 23.
Join the supporters of A Way Out in our city to benefit the ongoing work of the ministry by enjoying a delicious meal and witnessing some testimonies of lives changed that will encourage, inspire, and move you.
(And maybe you’ll win an original painting or some candlesticks at the silent auction!)
This occasion is important for men and for women, because we all can support the mission of A Way Out in some way. But especially if you’re a woman–even a young woman–your story may include the women by serving personally at A Way Out. Take this opportunity to discover the possibility.
Darilyn Christenbury, Kay Montague, and Linda Tichenor are all Christ Church members who have joined personally in the mission of A Way Out, and any one of them would be happy to help you make this discovery.
As Linda says, “For me it is such a privilege and a blessing to share Christ’s love and hope for a new future freed from the bondage of the past. We are all in this journey together.”
“Come hear how the heart of the sexually exploited is moved and changed by the tenderness of the Lord,” says Kay.
