Dear Beautiful Friends and Family,
Happy New Year! I am so very excited about this new year! Please allow me to give you an update on the plans for the upcoming Reimagine Milton event. I prefer to do bullet points, so here goes!
1. The event will be held at Carpenter’s Park on Saturday, January 23. The Milton Community Center will be hosting basketball games beginning each Saturday in January, eliminating that area for our Reimagine event, because of the congestion that could be caused by hosting two events at one location.
2. I was hoping to meet with each of you before the event. Tuesday, January 12th, at 6 p.m., will work for most. I don’t yet have a location. We could meet at Bagdad Elementary School (first volunteer meeting location) should that be available, or possibly the Milton Community Center. I will let you know as soon as I know but please place this date and time on your calendar.
3. Also, we will be doing things just a bit differently at this event. Gates will open at 9:30 a.m. to prepare for a
10 a.m. church service to last one hour. A recording artist by the name of Risen will be presenting the gospel at that time. Those who attend this church service will then receive a ticket for the food line. Please bare with me as God has spoken to me about these outreach events not being a social program but a way that our community members to be truly ministered too. From 11 a.m.-noon other ministry will take place from the stage. Then again at 12 noon to 1 p.m., another church service will take place for one hour. Those who attend this service will also receive a ticket for the food giveaway line. I have offered this second church service to Woodbine Baptist Church because a member of that church, Nancy Humphries, is the person who came to me about hosting a Reimagine Milton event about three years ago now. This church, over the years, is the church that volunteers to give out the food at the Reimagine Milton event. Once I have word from her, I will let you know. If this change is too quick for this church, I will be asking another church. After the 1 p.m. timeframe, others will minister from the stage until between
2 p.m.-2:30 p.m.
I am really excited about these changes as I believe they will make this event more relevant to our intended purposes and that is too see folks to come to know Jesus as their savior and receive that hope we have in Him.
Thank you so much for your prayers and patience as we move through these growing pains. You are an amazing community and are an amazing example of how we should all be working together. God bless you!
