The summer schedule has been keeping everyone busy here at the MAC. We have had Simply Dinner in June and July. We have served 362 meals so far this summer. We have reached 147 people through this ministry. Free tickets were given to us for a Red's Game so some kids got to participate in that event. We have been doing our Giving Back Projects, teaching everyone the joy of giving. We have had playground nights, art nights, and game nights for the kids. We tried to do a Half Marathon throughout the summer, but this event has not been desired by the community (live and learn). We have had a Community Wide Picnic across the street from the MAC and had a great turn out for that. Youth Night has been a lot of fun this summer - great to connect with the youth. One of the youth accepted Christ over Facebook one day while I was chatting with her - praise God. Banklick Fun in the Son just ended yesterday. We enrolled at total of 62 children during the week. Main Street Baptist Church from Alexandria came to help us put it on and they did a wonderful job. So much more is still on the agenda: Peaselburg Fun in the Son is next week (July 18-21). South Side Baptist Church's VBS is July 25-29. The week of August 1st we have 3 big things going on: Kicks for Kids Basketball Camp, Holman Street Fun in the Son with Union Baptist Church, and Gobel Fun in the Son with Hickory Grove Baptist Church. Inner City Day Camp is August 11-12 at Piner Baptist Church. Lots more as well. Be sure to look at our calendar. We would love for you to help us out - call if you have questions.
