of offering 20 service projects to the community—our gift

They are: Lydia Home, New Horizon Center, Youth Outreach
Services, Central Baptist Home, National Night Out/Chicago

requesting suggestions of an additional 10 organizations we can
consider serving; 2) for a volunteer to be the point person for
each project, and 3) for participants to help carry out each
project. Please prayerfully consider how you can contribute
your time and talents to the success of this vision. Please
