Faith In Action Sunday – Projects Info

On Sunday July 25th a couple hundred of our Eagle Pointe church family will not just GO to church – but instead they will head out into our community to BE THE CHURCH. No church services that day – just serving in our community. * NOTE: Childcare for babies & toddlers is available at the church starting at 8:15AM, & all F.I.A. participants need to show up at their locations by 9:00AM sharp for team prayer time before beginning work.

Here’s some info you need to know about each of our upcoming Faith in Action Sunday projects:

Flowering Branch Children’s Home is a division of Advocates for Bartow’s Children that serves as a short-term residential and counseling center for troubled youth. Many have been removed physical or substance abuse home environments. While in residence, youth receive individual, group and family counseling. At this location we will be doing a bunch of yard work (mowing, weed eating, edging, pruning trees, pulling weeds, etc.). We will also be putting in a large garden, cleaning the facility, putting up shelving, & organizing supplies. While there we will also do a cookout for volunteers & the kids at the center.  For more information about this location contact David Stowers @ davidstowers@bellsouth.net.

Open Hand Ministries serves and delivers over 4,500 meals a day to home-bound people due to age or physical condition. They provide nutrition educations to their clients, and they are recognized as one of the nation’s most innovative, visionary, and fiscally responsible non-profit organizations.  At this location we will be helping prepare meals & then deliver them to homes.  For more information about this location contact Leslie Wade @ lawade@mindspring.com.

Heroes 4 Heroes is a new project we will undertake this Faith in Action Sunday. The idea is to say “Thank You!” to the unsung heroes of every community – & that is our firefighters & police officers. We will meet at Eagle Pointe & put together sub sandwiches & other lunch items. Then we will deliver them to several of the fire stations & police stations in our area. For more information about this location contact Don & Susan Blahnik @ don.blahnik@yahoo.com and/or susan.blahnik@yahoo.com. (***NOTE: This location is now full – please choose another project)

House Angels is a ministry which does home renovation work for single moms, the elderly, & families struggling financially. They take on projects several times a year which many Eagle Pointe people participate in. On F.I.A. Sunday they will be working at 3 homes – an elderly single woman, a 90 yr old widow, & a single mom. We’ll be doing some carpentry work, painting, yard work, & landscaping. For more information about these locations contact Sean Nicholl @ snicholl@biltcore.com.

E.P.C. Kid’s Wing Renovations – We will also have a crew here at the church working on the Kid’s wing. In order, to help us better impact young lives for Jesus Christ we will be increasing the “wow factor” of our kid’s & teens environments. We will be painting classrooms & hallways, & doing other decorative type improvements. For more information about this location contact Jonathan Napier @ jonathan@eaglepointe.org.

Childcare @ Eagle Pointe – We will be offering childcare for babies & toddlers from 8:15AM – 2:00PM & we need people to work here at the church to care for the children. Without people serving in this capacity there is no way we could mobilize an army of volunteers to go & serve our community. For more information about this location contact Jonathan Napier @ jonathan@eaglepointe.org.

If you have not already done so, please “sign-up” for a location today by emailing office@eaglepointe.org. You will receive an email confirmation with further instructions, what to bring, etc.

I hope & pray that our entire Eagle Pointe family will join us in putting our Faith in Action on Sunday July 25th.
