ENGAGE | June 29
It's time to ENGAGE the needs of our city again! On June 29, from 8:30 am to 12:00 pm, we will be serving our city in several different locations. Events include:
Rivers Of Mercy Children's Home:
Rivers of Mercy (ROM) is a Christ-centered orphanage in Juarez, Mexico. They provide neglected and abused children from the government or community with a safe home where they feel loved and where they can know the love of Christ. ROM is in the first phase of launching a school for the children and New City is excited to partner in this calling. Funds raised from this car wash will be applied toward building expenses.
Details: 9am-12pm | Wash cars and get people excited about the mission of River's of Mercy Children's Home | Kids Welcome
Crossroads for Women:
CRFW is a local transition program helping women create safe, secure, and drug free lifestyles for themselves and their children and futures of economic self-sufficiency. Crossroads hosts an annual BBQ for all the women and their families who have been a part of the transition program. Crossroads has asked if New City would partner to produce a memorable and special event at a local park. They need help with setup, manning game booths, food distribution, and teardown. This is a great opportunity to engage women and children who have transitioned from really negative situations and are on the road of hope.
Details: 9am-3pm | Setup at park, provide a side dish, run a booth, pass out food, make cotton candy, be a photographer, be a friendly and engaging face, help teardown | Kids Welcome
Love INC operates a local ministry that screens requests from individuals for food, clothing, household items, home repairs, counseling and more. They partner with many churches and agencies in Albuquerque and refer the individual the best organization to meet the need. Love INC seeks to mobilize local churches to transform lives and communities in the name of Christ. Because Love INC is so often focused on the needs of others, they often overlook their own. New City will partner to tackle some needed repair work on Love INC's building. They have also asked us to assist on some client projects in the community.
Details: 9am-12pm | Hang drywall, paint the warehouse, lay laminate flooring, sort items for sale in the Love INC thrift store, yard work, small home repair projects | No Kids Please
Local Nursing Home:
The Beer and Bible Community group regularly visits residents at a local nursing home. New City will be partnering in their community group's mission as we spend time laughing and encouraging this group of elderly people.
Details: 9am-12pm | Be a friend, listen, laugh | Kids Welcome
