Our 50,000th child

Posted by handsofchrist.net@gmail.com on August 6, 2017 at 7:00 AM

This is Mone'.   She is the 50,000th child that we have served since our inception in 2003.  She was greeted with a standing ovation by our volunteers as she entered the feloowship hall at Zion Olivet on Saturday August 6.   Mone is a special child simply because she is a child of God.  She represents all the children that we have served over these 15 years, black, white, brown, yellow, and every shade in between.  She repesents the vision of our founders, the Rev. Drs. Tammy Gregory Carter, Sidney Davis, and that mission team in 2002 that went to observe Manos de Cristo in Austin, TX.  She represents the work of our hundreds of volunteers who have served over this time and especially t hework of our Operations Team.  She represents our philosophy of serving one child at a time in Christ's name. She represents the confidence that our granting agencies and congregations have in us as expressed by their financial support. She represents the 140+ year wall that came tumbling down that had separated our congregations since the War Between the states. She represents the Holy Spirit that has guided us as we started up and continually tweak our process.  She represents the work of the Steering Committee and our congregational liaisons and site directors.  She represents the work of our Board of Directors as they have provided oversight.  She represents our small, humble efforts to be Christ's hands, feet, and arms in this world as we try to live out the Great Ends of the Church as we pray they kingdom come, thy will be done.

The Six Great Ends of the Church (From the Book of Order F-1.0304)


The great ends of the church are:


*The proclamation of the gospel for the salvation of humankind

*The shelter, nurture, and spiritual fellowship of the children of God

*The maintenance of divine worship

*The preservation of the truth

*The promotion of social righteousness

*The exhibition of the Kingdom of Heaven to the world

(This statement of the great ends of the Church, slightly edited in the Book of Order, came from the United Presbyterian Church of North America, which united with the Presbyterian Church in the United States of America in 1958. The statement was then made a part of the Constitution of the United Presbyterian Church in the United States of America, as the body was called. This now classic statement was adopted by the United Presbyterian Church of North America in 1910, following various actions between 1904 and 1910 looking forward to the revision of the church’s Constitution.)

Soli deo gloria

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
