STC+-+DSS+WEB.jpg

We are partnering with DSS to provide childcare for a Foster Family Training event for the Lexington and Richland communities on April 27. The event will be held at 1800 Blanding Street and aims to make trainings more convenient for foster families as they typically travel long distances to get the training they need.

We will be expecting around 100 adults to attend the training and will need childcare volunteers to watch their kids during that time. Please sign up soon so we can take the necessary steps to ensure the safety for all children in our care.

Breakfast will be provided for all volunteers.

STC | Transitions | Storytelling and Worship Night

STC+-+Transitions+WEB.jpg

We will be throwing a Storytelling and Worship Night for the residents at Transitions on April 18th. The Storytelling and Worship Night is an opportunity for us to spend quality time with the residents at Transitions while enjoying the stories and songs from members of our church family. We want people within our church family to come tell engaging stories where they have seen God work in their life, or lead the group in songs of worship and thankfulness. Think coffee shop vibes but all centered around Jesus.

This is a great chance for us to continue to build relationships with the residents and staff at Transitions while helping foster conversations about Jesus. This is also a great opportunity to invite residents to our Easter Gathering.
