Breakfast Midnight Run – Sunday, May 7
Our older Sunday School students and their parents and teachers will participate in a Breakfast Run to New York City on Sunday, May 7. We are collecting donations of new short sleeve dark colored tee shirts; sizes large, extra-large and xx-large and new men’s crew socks as well as toiletry items including: travel toothpaste, individually wrapped toothbrushes, combs, travel shampoo and new washcloths. If you would like to contribute to the cause, there is a box in the breezeway of the church.
Midnight Run – Friday, June 2
On Friday, June 2nd, we will be doing our Spring Evening Midnight Run to New York City. We are collecting men’s and ladies gently used jeans, shoes, backpacks and hats for this Run. A signup sheet will be posted in the breezeway after our Breakfast Run is concluded. There will also be a sign-up sheet for those who wish to go on the Run at that time. What a blessing it is to participate in this outreach program.
Watch for future dates in the fall. We will distribute food, clothing, blankets and personal care items to the homeless poor on the streets of New York City. Look for more information as we schedule these important mission & outreach events.
This isn’t an opportunity for service, but it is an opportunity to prepare your heart for service. The Tres Dias Movement endeavors to “bring Christians to a closer, more personal walk with their Lord Jesus Christ and encourage them to Christian leadership and Apostolic Action in their environments.” It does this through a 3-day weekend retreat in which countless Christians have had their walk with Christ deepened and changed.
If you have felt the urge to do more in your walk but haven’t known quite how to start, a Tres Dias weekend may be just right for you. Contact us, or talk to just about anyone around you in church on any Sunday. With more than 50 people in our church having attended a weekend the chances are good that the person you talk to will have been on a weekend and be able to answer your questions.
Upcoming Tres Dias Weekends:
Men – April 20-23
Women – May 4-7
Men – November 2-5
Women – November 30 – December 3
