The Awakening Project is Almost Here
That time is almost here.
What time? you ask
Time for the Awakening Project-Baton Rouge
Bishop Vincent Mathews, COGIC World Missions, decided that instead of going abroad to do mission work it was time to make a difference in our own communities. He selected 12 cities, Memphis, Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Tampa, New York City, Los Angeles, Baltimore, Baton Rouge, Houston, Kansas City and Portland, to do mission work, simultaneous, during the week of July 31 – Aug 5.
This is an opportunity for you to make a difference in the community. An opportunity to awaken and empower men and women to be front line servants for Christ, to bring back love, hope, and change through hands-on training and participation in community service initiatives. We will be doing some beautification projects, working with Habitat for Humanities, St. Vincent De Paul, the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank, the Carrington Place and more.
I need your help, but more importantly, I need your support to make this project a success. I am challenging each of you to sign up as a volunteer and serve along side you. We are anticipating volunteers to come from all over the state to Baton Rouge to make an IMPACT with us.Let’s all show up and show out. Not only do I challenge you to sign up as a volunteer, but I challenge you to join me, the Awakening Team and other volunteers to touch lives, save souls, show kindness toward others and use this event to demonstrate UNITY in our city. I encourage you to get your neighbors, co-workers, family members, friends, children’s friends to join us.Think about how the city will be after the Awakening week. Peter 4:10 – Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
I invite you to check out our Facebook page, The Awakening – Baton Rouge and then go to ucfministries.org to register as a volunteer. How many will be representing your ministry?
It’s a blessing to be a blessing.
A servant for Christ,
Tara Walker – Team Lead
