Community Ministries of 6 Stones hosted a Community Christmas dinner at the Hillside Village Community on the evening of December 8th. 125 residents attended. David Welch of 6 Stones and Lee Simmons of CityLife took the lead on this ministry gathering!

The Christmas Dinner began with a call from Esmerelda, the manager of Hillside Village to Lee Simons, dedicated volunteer with 6 Stones. Esmerelda wanted to host a Christmas Dinner for her community! Lee contacted 6 Stones, then David Welch took the staff lead, along with Esmerelda and Lee, on making this desire come to reality. They went to work on securing the resources it would take to host such an event. The end result was a beautiful evening where people came together, heard the reading of the Christmas story by Dalton Hill from Luke 2, and a community celebration meal! Special thanks to manager Esmerelda for truly caring for her residents!
