Thanksgiving was a great time to bless 150+ families with a full thanksgiving dinner. We had three groups that went into four apartment communities. Pictured above is a life group from 121 Community Church. They distributed twenty seven family dinners to residents at Shadow Creek apartments in Euless. Shadow Creek will be a key center for community ministry in 2013. The management at Shadow Creek is providing a large one bedroom apartment for us to use as a community center. Dave Sielski with City Life Church is the first to step up to service there. He will be launching a teen ministry there in January. Dave is the one in the cowboy hat!
This was the second year we have had the privilege of partnering with Cummins Southern Plains, to provide a thanksgiving dinner to one hundred families! Cummins employees came out in force to distribute the boxes to three of our apartment communities: Sutton Square and Glen Rose Park in Hurst; Woodridge Apartments in Fort Worth. Sue Foley, the executive assistant with Cummins Southern Plains did a great job in mobilizing her team! Sue Foley (far right) and one of three teams from Cummins Southern Plains! Sue and her team worked with Flor Gutierrez and Tony Olivo (manager and maintenance director) to distribute dinners to thirty three families at Sutton Square.Flor and Tony care about their community and were on site Saturday morning to help the team locate all of the families! Sue’s second of three teams distributed dinners to thirty three families at Glen Rose Park. Here they are as they getting ready to make the distribution!
Joy Sellers and her Kids Club team at Glen Rose Park partnered with Joy’s Sunday School Class to also distribute Thanksgiving Baskets to the residents of Glen Rose Park. Joy is such an inspiration to watch her live out the ministry at GRP. She leads her team to be actively involved in the entire life of the kids and families at GRP. They lead a Kids Club and Teen Club, which take up several hours a week, then they also visit in the community and reach out to the families as a whole.
