Help Needed

Sunday morning, I led a service that focused on church as an instrument of grace vs. church as a political force. It has amazed me the opportunities that have come just this week.

A few guys associated with the Salvation Army in Atlanta have started a soccer league for a Hispanic community near them. They coach kids (average age 7-9) and have about 30 children participating. They could have so many more, but that is the max number that will fit in the vans.

The children (and coaches) are having the time of their lives. However, many needs exist that are simple for us to help solve.

*Many of the girls are playing indoor soccer in sandals and clog-style shoes. A local church in Conyers has volunteered to provide shoes for all of the children.

*The championship game in next Saturday. A children's minister has now donated metals for everyone.

*We need socks for the kids.

*They would love to have some sort of pizza party to end the season.

*Last, they want to give each kid a soccer ball to take back with them.

*Any other creative ideas are welcomed!

*You can join me and the others tonight, next Thursday, or next Saturday to help with the kids.

Would you be willing to help? If so, please contact me at caroline@summit-ministries.com. I would love to overwhelm those kids!
