LOCAL

NO MORE CHILD ABUSE

Together with the No More Violence organization we want to address the issue of child abuse that we see in our city.  Through the promotion of values, we want to bring awareness of the critical reality that children are facing. The promotion of the values of Respect, Truth, Life, Love & Peace, appear to be lost or disappearing give us common ground by which we can build bridges into the hearts of hurting people and also assist in the prevention of abuse as these values are emphasized and put into practice.

For the remainder of 2019 we will promote these five values hoping to reach a tipping point that will propel us into promoting these and other values in 2020 as we work for continued peace in these and other cities.

Together with our partners, we want to raise awareness of the issue of child abuse and work towards reducing the incidences of this problem that destroys lives and families.

Any funds raised through this initiative will be used for room makeovers in coordination with Alliance for Children.

MISSION ARLINGTON

People are coloring outside the lines of traditional church work to take the gospel one person at a time to the city of Arlington. Followers of Jesus from across denominational boundaries are hard at work gathering people for Bible studies in apartment club houses, mobile homes, and neighborhoods — wherever anyone is interested. Without professional seminary degrees and armed only with the truth of John 3:16, these ordinary men and women become pastors and club houses become sanctuaries. Make an impact in your community by volunteering your time. For more information contact Mission Arlington at 817-277-6620 or www.missionarlington.org/joinin/volunteer/.

BACKPACKS

Our Backpack ministry helps over 100 kids in the Arlington School System by providing them with food each week. Children are supplied a bag of food each Friday afternoon.  These food items provide nutrition to children that might not get food over the weekend. Will you help us by picking up large-count individual sizes of the following items: Mac and cheese, fruit cups, Granola Bars, oatmeal, small boxes of cereal, cereal bars, tuna w/crackers, pudding cups, or salty snacks.  You can make a difference in children’s lives.
