The food was great — savory taco meat, homemade guacamole, spicy beans and freshly chopped onions, tomatoes and lettuce. Cheese, salsa, sour cream and tortilla chips added to the selection to create a great menu of Mexican Stack salad. But that wasn’t the best part.
There was also great sing-along music complete with hand held percussion instruments for everyone. We belted out Day O and If I Had A Hammer (sung to the tune of Twist and Shout — try it; it really works!) and several other fun songs. But that wasn’t the best part either.
The best part is that it was a gathering of people from DiscipleChurch, First 7th, and the eleven:eleven worship communities for the simple of purpose of enjoying life together.
The central goal of the Community Advocate office is to enhance community life.
Food. Fun. Music. Smiles. New acquaintances. Sharing. Giving and receiving.
Definitely makes life better.
The Community Advocate Office coordinates the joint efforts of church members and friends of the church to end homelessness. Life coaching, mentoring, social and educational activities, provide opportunities for people to lead fuller lives of sharing and caring for each other.
