Week of April 15

    Week of April 15, 2018

    Brothers and Sisters,

    This is an exciting week for our BlessMobile ministry. For years now, we've gone regularly to Merritt Housing Complex in East McKinney and built wonderful relationships with the residents there. But the McKinney Housing Authority is razing Merritt and rebuilding it, so the BlessMobile is going to a new location, beginning this Sunday.

    After the 11 a.m. service, we're headed to the Brookwood Fourplexes near White and 75. One of the exciting parts about this is that many of the kids that go to Burks, our partner elementary school, live in this area — so we're doubling down on building relationships with our neighbors.

    With the ministry "rebooting," now is a great time to join in making the BlessMobile happen. You can sign up online — the roles are all clearly described and defined: prep some food, help load the trailer, clean up, serve on site, etc. Can you help get this next stage in the life of the BlessMobile off to a great start? (Click here for the sign up page).
