Making Waves

Christ Community Chapel's Be a Bridge to your Neighbor Initiative is making waves!  

In January, Pastor Joe encouraged the members of CCC to Be a Bridge to our Neighbors as the 2013 church initiative.   Whether it is throwing a block party on your street, or bringing a batch of cookies over to the neighbor next door,  members are encouraged to use their creativity to share the love of Christ with their neighbors.   

One couple invited both children from their surrounding neighborhood and children from one of our ministry partners, South Street Ministries, ( to join them in their backyard pool Fridays for swimming, fellowship, and lunch.    They hired 2 life guards to supervise the fun and help with swimming lessons for any children in need of instruction.   

Below is a picture of some of the memories being made as children meet children from other neighborhoods and realize that we are all God's children, fearfully and wonderfully made!   

What does your "Be a Bridge to the Neighborhood" look like?

Urban Vision can use a little help from their friends this summer!

Students at Urban Vision's Beacon Christian Learning Center have made great progress in their education this past school year, but volunteer help is immediately needed for the summer so what they've learned doesn't slip away! Also, there is a need to help incoming students get a jump on the next school year. Urban Vision is looking for committed volunteers who will develop relationships, encourage, motivate, and invest in the lives of children.

WILL YOU CONSIDER HELPING THE BEACON KIDS THIS SUMMER?  The volunteering time is up to the volunteer.  The students are elementary, junior high, and high school.  There are summer teachers in place with assignments based on individual needs of the students, but MUCH volunteer help is needed.

In a nutshell, here's how you could help:

Elementary and Jr. High ~ Helping one on one with a student with their reading, math flashcards, etc. depending on their individualized plan; helping motivate them and staying on top of them with their work.  16 volunteers are needed for Fridays June 28 - July 26th, 2:15-3:15 pm and August 9th 4:45-5:45 pm.

High School ~ Helping with everything from their reading and math flashcards to grading papers. July 8-August 2 and August 12-16, 11:30-4:00 pm. Volunteers are needed to serve 1-5 days a week, from 1 hour to all day.

If you think you are interested in helping and want more information, please email Guida Sweitzer directly as soon as possible!
