Tuesday, August 29, 2017

Worship from the Heart Breakfast will be held at the Chattanooga Convention Center on Tuesday, Oct. 3.  Proceeds benefit the Mustard Tree Ministries.

"Worshiping God with our hearts means we let His Light shine through us" will be the spiritual message delivered by Dr. Karen Joy Luce Rogers.  

"Karen is a gifted glass artist and gardener. Wherever she calls home in Georgia or Maine, she is surrounded by her creative beauty. Here in Chattanooga, Karen has gifted new homeowners a beautiful stain glass window which she created especially for them through Habitat for Humanity," organizers said.

Rev. Barry Kidwell said the Mustard Tree Ministries offers several ways of helping to connect people to Jesus.

1. We go out on the streets and meet people where they live. We also offer free soup in Miller Plaza every Wednesday from 12:30-1:30 p.m. in order to build relationships and offer the love of Christ.

2. Each Thursday evening, we offer a free dinner and Bible study at First Baptist Church in downtown Chattanooga.

3. Each Sunday evening, we offer a free dinner and worship at First Centenary United Methodist Church called, "Breakthrough Worship" from 5-6:30 p.m. in The Vine.

Linda Price, the music director from Stuart Heights Baptist Church, will be singing praise songs during the breakfast.
