EASTER OUTREACH 2016
We are very excited to launch Easter Outreach again! This year, we’re partnering with over 30 churches and organizations throughout the region to distribute 3,700 Easter dinners to neighbors and build 3 wells in South Sudan. To do this, we’ll need hundreds of volunteers to help pack meals during the week leading up to delivery day on March 26th. We’ll also need your financial partnership as we hope to reach our fundraising goal of $85,000. For information on serving, giving, and more, please visit easteroutreach.org.
ALPHA CARE WORKDAY
Alpha Care is in the midst of transitioning it's office space to the recently acquired 3807 and 3809 Lancaster Ave properties (adjacent to the infamous Gosnell abortion clinic). Some people might not understand why any business/group (especially a pregnancy services organization) would want to establish their location at a site of such horror, but we are strong believers that God can redeem not just this building, but the site can be used as a light and witness to the world and a symbol for life; He transforms tragedy into promise! Alpha Care will be holding a workday Saturday, February 27, from 10AM-1PM. For more information, contact Elizabeth Harrop.
SMALL FRY RETURNS!
Small Fry teaches children and their parents how to cook healthy meals using easily obtainable and inexpensive ingredients. Through these classes, families learn about healthy eating habits, healthy ingredients, and food preparation in a fun loving community atmosphere. Classes take place at the Marian Anderson Rec Center (17th and Fitzwater Streets) on Saturdays starting February 13th (additional dates include: 2/20, 2/27, 3/5, 3/12, 3/19 and then Easter meal hand out on 3/26) . We meet and review lesson plans at 11 am and the class ends by 2:00 pm. Please contact Alissa McLaughlin .
EMMANUEL COMMUNITY MEAL
Liberti partners with First Baptist Church to reach out to our homeless friends and neighbors in Center City. We cook, serve and eat a meal together. We provide a reflection on a Scripture passage and seek to offer time to build relationships and relax in a safe environment. Volunteers are needed to serve with Emmanuel on 2nd and 4th Saturdays from 10:00AM - 4PM at 17TH & SANSOM. For more information, please email Caroline Credille.
