The District Church, in partnership with Grace Meridian Hill and the Columbia Heights Youth Center, partnered together to start a Youth Club that meets at the Youth Center. Meeting kids and building relationships is done in a lot of different ways, but one of the most effective ways is always through sports: one of the biggest outreaches we have to kids at the Youth Center is the basketball league, but this year we still need some more teams! So first, if you know of any youth, or know of people who work with youth, who could form a team, please enter them in the leauge!
Second, one of the men who works at the Youth Center, Mr. Lindsay, is part of a gospel choir called God's Miracles. His choir is putting on a fundraiser concert for the Youth Club -- half the proceeds of the show go to the Youth Center for the Youth Club! It is a concert luncheon on February 25th at the Youth Center, so please join us if you can! This is a great way to benefit youth in our city, as well as meet some kids and possibly get involved yourself! Check out the show details at http://www.eventbrite.com/event/992150549 and help spread the word!
Grace and Peace,
Leadership Resident and Outreach Director, The District Church
