We are Thankful for our Volunteer Teams!

We were blessed last month with 3 volunteer groups coming to help with maintenance, repairs, and outreach at Take the City LifeHouses and SafeHouse.

An Evangel Temple Local MAPs team spent a Saturday morning repairing the fascia and soffits at our North Highlands 26th St LifeHouse.  They are coming back on future Saturdays to complete these repairs and paint the fascia and soffits which will complete the exterior renovations at this LifeHouse.

We were also blessed with a Serve team from North Highlands Opelika Church to begin repairs and renovations at our Redeem SafeHouse. They cleared limbs away from the roof of the house to prepare for repairs of soffits and fascia. In addition they began installing new shelves in closets and storage rooms. They plan to come back in future months to repair and paint the soffits/fascia, complete interior shelving , and planting shrubbery around the house.

Catch the Fire Ministry School from Toronto, Canada sent a ministry team to Columbus during their month long ministry tour of the States prior to graduation.  This team led praise and worship at PMT Church in Phenix City on Sunday, went whitewater rafting on the Chattahoochee river on Monday, and performed ministry projects and outreach at our Lifehouses.

We’re thankful for all of our volunteer ministry teams and the investment they make in our LifeHouse communities. Contact Louis Chalmers (Ph. 404.861.3959) to discuss how your ministry team can help with LifeHouse maintenance, repairs, and outreach. 

We would also like to discuss how your church family can become one of our monthly LifeHouse Ministry Partners like Pastor Chuck Hasty and Grace Presbyterian Church are in our Bradley Circle LifeHouse community.

  1. Sometimes when we are home-bound due to an illness or prolonged issue that GOD ALONE can address, WE FORGET THAT WE STILL HAVE AN ARSENAL OF WEAPONRY AT OUR DISPOSAL FOR THE BUILDING UP OF THE KINGDOM!!! WE NEED TO STAY GROUNDED IN GOD’S WORD AND USE THAT AS A LAUNCHPAD FOR WORSHIP AND PRAYER FOR THOSE OUT WORKING IN GOD’S HARVEST FIELDS! Also—HIS FIELD IS OFTEN EXACTLY WHERE YOU ARE!!! Since we forget this and need to be reminded, we thought others may need it too. His love and ours, Carla & Gary Dean

  2. The Safe house was actually a team from Church of the Highlands, Opelika.

Even with only 2 Take the City Outreaches under my belt, they have made such an impact in my own personal journey of faith, and others I have crossed paths with! The most special part to me is knowing that even if I meet someone and I never see them again, I know God has allowed me to touch their heart and plant a seed that I couldn’t have done sitting at home. I’m so thankful for this organization because it truly has allowed me to connect with others, with the goal of bringing them closer to Christ, while becoming closer with God myself at the same time.
