Nearly everyone has a project going on! Flint’s youth and under served poor stand to benefit, if naysayers can take a back seat and bring forth a positive presence!
Gardens, clean up, family and youth activities; dozens of projects to put a smile on young faces and food in empty bellies.
Can you volunteer? Do you need help? Do you know someone needing help? Can you donate? Gardening supplies, craft supplies, clothing, prizes, time; all are welcome and no affiliation with the church is required. Sure, they’d love to have you on Sunday, but this is a community wide effort. Flint, and the Eastside, have experienced a man made disaster, and if we come together and share a goal of ‘a happy place to live’ , we stand to come out winners in a very short time.
Don’t rob the youth of dreams, give them dreams to dream! It’s all about the youth, but the wisdom and experience of the elders is required! Teachers are needed; people with a craft to share, a skill to pass on; and a dream to be a part of a rebirth.
Everything is in the early stages of planning and formation, it’s never too late to become involved. Maybe a music hobby is your passion? Maybe you can share small engine skills or know how to sew? Maybe a theater gig would give you chills, or set decoration? Cooking? Knitting? Maybe a bunch of craft supplies are in need of re-homing? Teaching and sharing for the benefit of all.

Often pessimism is abundant in our community; but as you change the environment you surround yourself with, a whole new world emerges. The community is full of hope and promise, and you can see it in the face of a child, as you give new opportunities and a fresh environment, to those who have lost hope and live in despair.
