Clairmont Presbyterian Church is pitching in to help the less fortunate in the North Druid Hills-Briarcliff community this weekend.
The Feb. 10 event sounds like a great project, and the church was recently highlighted in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Details from that story:
The Sunday of “Acts of Worship” will kick off with a short service in the sanctuary, after which members will gather in groups and travel to 16 locations in the community. The focus is on organizations or situations involving children, refugees and the poor.
“Each group will do an activity, such as painting at the Clarkston Community center where we’ll also share a meal with people there,” said Hulme-Lippert. “At Hagar’s House, an emergency shelter for women and children, we’ll be making pizza. There are two retirement groups in our community that don’t get visited that often. But I think the most creative thing we’re doing is having one team leader take 12 people on public transportation. Most of our congregation doesn’t even know what it means to do that. What do you see when you get off at the Five Points station? We don’t just want to serve; we want to put names to the faces of those in need.”
The church is looking for volunteers. They are invited to sign up online at www.clairmontpres.org or call 404-634-3355.
