This summer, Be The Love and Capital City Church are blanketing the DC Metro Area with love! Our summer campaign started with our service day at the DC General Shelter on July 26. There, we gave out clothes, shoes and accessories to families residing in the shelter. One by one, families got to walk through the Free Market picking out everything from onesies to sneakers to dresses. There were residents lined up as soon as we opened the doors. We heard comments like, “We never get anything new – so this is so great,” and “You all are so nice for doing this for us,” and “I was able to find my son some new sneakers for school.” Our favorite comment came from a woman who needed to find a pair of shoes for church. She told us “I know Jesus doesn’t mind what we come in, but I want to be cute.”
Would you like to share this fun with us over the next month? We’ve got three great ways to get involved!
1) On August 23, 2014, we’re hosting a Family Fun and Service Day at Hayfield Elementary School in Alexandria, Virginia! It will be a family friendly service opportunity day where we’ll stuff back to school back packs going to children at the DC General Homeless Shelter, craft cards welcoming teachers back to school, and perform maintenance on the school grounds. Then, we’ll wrap the morning up with free pizza and snow cones at 11:30am! More info here: http://bit.ly/1kbjgI2
2) On August 30, 2014, we’re moving our service into DC for a back to school Superhero party for the children at the DC Homeless Shelter! This will be a huge event where we hope to empower the young residents and send them on their way to a successful school year! More info here: http://bit.ly/1nSM9bT
3) Do our 21 day devotional with us! Each day we’ll provide you with a short verse and devotional to help you find out more about your own mission! Check the link for details! http://capcitychurch.
