Hands-On Mission Opportunities

Arlington Life Shelter – Saturday August 3

Rush Creek has the blessing of providing and serving meals to families in need right here in Arlington.  The first Saturday of April is our next time in the rotation with the Arlington Life Shelter.  Our efforts provide sack lunches that are prepared at the church, cooking a hot meal that is taken to the shelter for dinner on that Saturday, and serving the dinner that night.  Karen Meachum is the coordinator of this outreach ministry.  The Wonder Women will assembly the sack lunches on Saturday afternoon.  We are always open to new and continuing helpers to make effort possible.  It is a great way to be a witness and serve those Christ called us to serve.  If you want to help, please contact Karen so you can join the effort.
