Celebrating 18 Years of Compassion
Sunday, June 10, City of Light will be celebrating 18 years of an ongoing compassion ministry to metropolitan Atlanta. Over the years we have grown from a simple program of volunteers offering sandwiches out of their cars to a weekly food bank, clothing closet, and a weekly dinner for the hungry and/or homeless and most recently a mobile dining room, a bus that provides a variety of service to those in need.
Each Sunday we begin our Services by thinking of the needs of others and giving through prayer and tangible gifts in a "Do Unto Other" offering that has given thousands of dollars to special needs in Atlanta and our world. Compassion is alive on so many levels at City of Light and we want to celebrate it.
Here's How you can help us celebrate:
On June 10, bring a bag of canned food items to church and let's dress the chancel area with gifts of love. Some suggested items are canned meats (chicken, tuna, Vienna Sausages), canned vegetables, pastas, soups (its great to have pop top cans to make it easy for the homeless), spaghetti sauce, canned fruit and bottled water.
Join with us as we honor and those volunteers that have made this ministry so successful
Start Thinking of your favorite charity! On that Sunday, someone's name will be drawn to designate the Do Unto Others offering to the charity of their choice, other than City of Light.
