il_214x170.470933299_t4fnSouth Street has begun their Open Gym program this week on Thursday evenings. This program is a great way to get to know the kids in a relaxed environment either by helping to tutor, bring a meal, or play basketball with them. While some slots have filled up there is still space for many more life groups to jump into this cool serving opportunity. You can use this form to sign up to help or to contact South Street with questions or more information!

In two weeks at Gameday (January 20th), Give It Away will be collecting food for our city partners! We are hoping to stock up each of our partners for the next few months so that they don’t have to worry about these items and can focus on other ministry opportunities! We know that your life group may be serving at Gameday during the season but if you’d like to contribute any food off the list you can bring it to the Extension on January 20th from 7am-6pm or drop it off at the office during the week. You can find the list of needed items here:
