Our Hope MCC Cares Grant

I have been in prayer for you and for our church. My prayers have extended beyond the virtual walls of our church with so many people in need, so many angels struggling to help them. The Cares Grant is our opportunity to help people help others. Quite simply, we will grant funds per quarter to a local charity. This charity must share in our outreach to all people of Athens, regardless of race, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, faith, and so on. This does not have to be a faith-based group. The Admin Council will determine who receives the grant and when. The recipient will then be invited to join us for a Sunday service to offer thanks and share more about their organization.

For example, Our Hope has been a proud sponsor of Boybutante for years. This year, due to Covid-19, they have cancelled events. However, their need was not cancelled and neither was hope. Therefore, the Admin Council determined that they will be our first Cares Grant recipient.

This is your church. In the future, if you know of a charity which qualifies, you are asked to submit their name to the Admin Council. Think about it this way: you notice that, for example, a rescue pet clinic is looking for funds. You have $10 to donate. However, when you involve your church, it could be more and their thank you can generate more donations.

Finally, if you would like to donate to Our Hope, The Hunger Bowl or the MCC Cares Grant, you may do so from our website via the Tithe.ly button at the bottom of the page – select General Fund for tithing, or Cares Grant or Hunger Bowl. You may also do so by check and mail it to 160 Tracy St, Athens, GA 30601. Please be sure to note on your check where you like your funds to go. For example, if you write one check for $50, you can note that $30 for tithe, $10 for Hunger Bowl and $10 for MCC Cares grant.

Since I arrived here almost two years ago, I have been searching for another way to reach out to the community, make them aware of us and encourage them throughout the year. We will continue being a participant in the Hunger Bowl of the Northeast Georgia Food Bank, as well as Angel Patrol, which we are open to ideas on how to do this safely. We will also adopt a school, probably Fowler Drive Elementary, and provide gift cards for school supplies to the staff (a Cares Grant donation).

We have been blessed and we are called to share our blessings.
