Do you feel like your prayers need a boost? Have you been crying out to The Lord about something for so long but have yet to see a breakthrough? Are you seeking God’s will on a big decision you need to make? Do you just want a deeper relationship with God? This course is for both people who are just starting out their walk with Christ and those who have been walking for years. The goal is to go deeper with The Lord and find freedom through the disciplines of prayer and fasting. We will study both the Old and New Testaments to see how prayers and fasts in the scriptures can apply to our current day life. If you are interested in this class, please contact Dee Allen at email@example.com. Currently, we are just surveying interest - if enough of you are interested, Dee will then schedule the class.
Are you aware that nearly one in six seniors in America faces the threat of hunger?
Did you know the State of Florida has the second largest number of food stamp-eligible older adults in the nation? However, estimates reveal that only about 40% of these have applied for the program.
Do you know older adults in your congregation or community who may have problems with food security?
ARE YOU CALLED TO HELP?
Florida Impact, a non-profit organization dedicated to securing economic justice in Florida by reducing hunger and poverty, is launching a program to train faith-based volunteers to reach out to and screen senior citizens who may be at risk for food insecurity. Ultimately, the goal is to assist seniors with getting approved to receive SNAP benefits.
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), also known more commonly as food stamps, assists low-income citizens with getting the nutritious food they need. Unfortunately, too many seniors believe they are not eligible for the program or are reluctant to sign up.
Faith-based volunteers will be trained to recognize possible signs of food insecurity, to understand the sensitive nature of this issue with older adults, to inform and encourage them to sign up if they are eligible, and perhaps most important, to help them with the application process.
If you would like to learn more about this project, please RSVP to the upcoming Senior Outreach Volunteer Training scheduled for 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM on July 24th, 2018 at Trinity United Methodist Church, located 120 W Park Ave in Tallahassee (gated entrance on Duval Street, parking available in the Leroy Collins Public Library lot). To RSVP, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and phone number.
God’s Word Encourages Action
Matthew 25:45 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.'
The least of these are often the seniors we see daily who may have issues and problems that are keeping them from being well nourished. All they may need is to be made aware of and to be assisted with a resource that will help them live healthier and longer lives.
