8th Annual Celebrate Mount Pleasant
Sign Up Tables for our 8th Annual Celebrate Mount Pleasant will be in the cafe on Sunday, May 15 after both services!
For the last month or so, we have been talking about this year’s Celebrate Mount Pleasant. We have all the area leaders in place and now we are looking for YOU!
Celebrate Mount Pleasant is not just a community outreach to a low income housing community. It is an opportunity to impact a community and a time to take the light of Christ that shines within us and share it with a community in need of hope. We want to let the families that live there know that their lives matter and they are loved by God. It’s a time to bring our physical and spiritual gifts together, working side by side with the families, to bring the joy of Jesus by our actions on this day. It’s not about the physical things we do on this day, but the interactions and relationships that develop that will have a lasting effect and can truly make a lasting impact in the Kingdom of Heaven.
Celebrate Mount Pleasant is an all-day event on Saturday June 4th, beginning at 8am. It happens annually and we are on year 8! Please see below for details about what will be happening on that day and how you can participate:
Throughout the day there will be different events going on for the community. Big L’s sidewalk ministry will doing puppet shows and teaching the kids about the bible followed by a cookout for everyone, members of the community will run a 3 on 3 basketball tournament for the kids of Mount Pleasant, and teams from Wellspring will be completing mini make overs for 10 families in the community. There may also be a few surprises here and there!
We are looking for volunteers to help in the following areas:
- Mural: help paint a mural

- Garden: plant vegetables and clean up the garden area

I’m really looking forward to seeing God at work through His people and the blessings that follow through our service.
In the Spirit,
