Christ United Methodist Church, 8645 East Brainerd Road, is starting a new ministry for those in our community with early to mid-stage Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers.
The group’s purpose is to provide a time for fellowship and to share a fun time singing the old songs we all love and remember. The group will meet on the second and fourth Tuesday morning of each month.
Greeters and song leaders are needed to help start this ministry but a music background is not necessary. Volunteers can be on a rotating schedule. For more information, contact Wayne Evans at 423 240-6887 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ever wonder if charity work is actually helping people in need? The Young Adult group (anyone 18-35 years old) will be exploring Robert Lupton’s book, "Toxic Charity." The study will begin Sunday, from 7:30-8:30 p.m. in the Youth Center.
Mr. Lupton has invested almost 40 years of his life in inner-city Atlanta. His life’s work has been the rebuilding of urban neighborhoods where families can flourish and children can grow into healthy adults. In "Toxic Charity," he discusses the tough reality that church and charities often hurt those they are trying to help and how to reverse it.
The group will not meet on Feb. 2, due to the Super Bowl.
