Since the Christmas season the after school program has been in full motion with the exception for Mardi Gras. The children are preparing for their end of year tests as well as graduation exams for most High School students. It has been a blessing to have the staff we have to help out for the remainder of the year. We do have a new intern with us, Matthew Seagraves, who has joined us for the remainder of the year as well as throughout the summer for our S.O.U.L. summer camp program. The week after he arrived we had a young adult group from the Friends Campus Ministries (FCM) of NC State and UNCG came down to spend their spring break serving our God. They served in the community by rebuilding the stairs to a man's porch, cleaning and weeding McIntosh Elementary School's garden so that they can replant for the spring. The group also assisted at the center by repainting the upstairs housing for groups as well as helping out in the after school program. After their farewells, a group from North Carolina also came down to train. This particular group is a varying staff from year-to-year for the Summer Camps held at the center. They were able to take part in the Community Dinner held that Saturday where we had numerous folks, young and old, sharing in a meal and time of fellowship. This weekend we are holding our Disciple Now Event detailed in the previous post and we ask for prayer in God's continual will throughout the weekend. We also ask for prayer for our weekly and daily services: ASP, Youth Group, Food Bank, Rummage Re-Sale, Alcoholics Anonymous, and Community Transportation to and from Doctor's, Store's, Courthouse, etc. We also ask for prayer for the communities growth in their walk with Christ, their health, and their opportunity to share their stories with others. We also want to praise God and thank those who donated for the Disciple Now and greatly appreciate the help. With your help, you helped students who wouldn't have otherwise came, register and prepare for this weekend.
