Rock City + Crack House = An Awesome Day!
This weekend at Rock City was EXCEPTIONAL for a few reasons. For starters, Sunday was the highest attended service to date. It’s absolutely mind-blowing what God is doing here. There was such a tangible energy at both the 9:00am and 10:45am worship experiences. It was a great day.
But the BEST part of the day was when we got to give our FIRST ONEforONE check to Pastor Mitchell and CRACK House Ministries!
I met Pastor Mitchell last year. I reached out to him after reading an article about CRACK House (Christ Resurrects After Crack Kills) in Relevant Magazine. We met, and I knew pretty immediately that CRACK House was a ministry we were going to partner with. Pastor Mitchell and his team run a sober home program for men overcoming addiction and their innercity ministry reaches out to people who are desperate and battling drug and alcohol addiction.
Our ONEforONE mission is to GIVE ONE DOLLAR to a local or global need for every person that walks through our doors, every week. One for One, every person, every week. And on Sunday, we were able to bless CRACK House Ministries with a check for $2,000!
I told Pastor Mitchell he had two minutes to share. He showed up with an egg-shaped timer … he said, “I brought this egg, cause you don’t give a black pastor a microphone and expect him to only talk for two minutes.” HA!
It’s good to have friends like Pastor Mitchell. And it’s good for Rock City to continue to develop relationships with people and organizations that are moving in the same direction and making a real and tangible difference in the places where God has called them. And it’s so exciting to think about, in the course of this new year, how many checks we’re going to write … how many needs are going to be met … how many people are going to be loved and blessed as a result of ONEforONE!
Let’s keep this momentum going! And let’s continue to LIVE OUT generosity!
And remember, we’ve only just begun!
