Lott-Carey Short-Term Mission Opportunity
Young Adults ages 18-40 are invited to share in a dynamic week of mission service with Trinity Evangelical Ministries in St. Mary, Jamaica (Ocho Rios Vicinity) July 12-19, 2014. Missionaries are needed to empower underserved children and youth through a week of Christ-centered enrichment activities. Service opportunities include Vacation Bible School teachers, recreational leaders, music ministry, and more. Application deadline is January 10, 2014. All young adults ages 18-40 are welcome to serve! If you are interested, please see Missionary Marilyn Franklin or visit www.lottcarey.org/short-term-mission-opportunities.
The Missionary Ministry will be working with the Children of Mine Youth Center, Inc., located in Washington, DC. This is a 501(c)(3) volunteer-based after school program in Washington, DC's Anacostia neighborhood that provides a safe, clean, and loving home to children from the Metropolitan area. Between 75-80 children come every day to do their homework, eat a hot meal, and participate in organized activities.
The Founder/Director of this program is Mrs. Hanna M. Hawkins. On every third Saturday of the month, Mrs. Hawkins provides services to the homeless men in the area with hot meals, clothing, as well as haircuts. This is the part that the Missionary Ministry will participate in; our prayer is that MBC would help us to help others that are in need. If you would like to be involved in this mission, there is a sign-up sheet in the Fellowship Hall. We are looking for at least four people to participate each month. If you sign up, please be mindful that we need to be there by 7:00 a.m. The Missionary Ministry will be volunteering the third Saturday of this month. If you have any questions, please see Missionaries Mary Jackson or DeGrasia Howard.
Please join the Forever Faithful Ministry every Monday (December 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd, and 30th) at 10 a.m. as they serve residents of Fort Washington Health & Rehabilitation Center (located at 12021 Livingston Road, Fort Washington, MD 20744).
