AN EXTRAVAGANT NIGHT OF GIVING
"I was naked, and you gave Me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for Me. I was in prison, and you visited Me. . . I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these My brothers and sisters, you were doing it to Me."
Matthew 25:36, 40 NLT
I know what it means to be in need. I grew up in poverty, one of seven children; raised by a single mother.
Worse than the rain coming through our ceiling, or the lack of running water, was many a hungry holiday void of the new toys I would see other children enjoying.
Except for the Salvation Army, we would've had many more holidays such as those.
The Salvation Army stepped in with food and toys when our family needed it most.
The work of relief organizations such as the Salvation Army is near and dear to my heart—as they truly do bring relief when times are painfully hard for families and children.
As a ministry, we have had a proud history of serving marginalized communities through our medical outreaches and adopt-a-city programs. For example, we have partnered with organizations in MacFarland and Selma to coordinate back-to-school events, holiday drives, and adult education initiatives.
I am happy to announce we are bringing this same
spirit of giving to our own great city of Atlanta!
This holiday season, I want to invite you to partner with me in giving back right here in Atlanta, GA.
and personal items to families in need this Christmas.
At this year's End Your Year Strong, we will be hosting "A Night of Giving" where we will gather all of the items we have collected and present them, along with a monetary donation, to these worthy organizations!
Please consider bringing new blankets and books, toys and toiletries, clothing and food to this year's Empowerment Summit!
Help us empower those who need empowerment the most...especially during the holidays.
I know what it's like to be among the least of these...and I know what it meant to have others remember our family and show tangible kindness—kindness that we could touch, wear, eat, and play with!
Being a recipient of others' goodwill on Christmas Day was as if heaven opened over our family!
Plan now what items you will bring...
as we celebrate "A Night Of Giving" on December 13th!
Let's OPEN HEAVEN over the least of these this holiday season!
JOIN US as we unlock God's extravagance for one Extravagant Night of Giving!
I can't wait to see what God will do through you individually—and through us collectively—as we end this year by giving generously!
