The vision for Awaken Church in 2013 is for us to be further invested in our community than ever before. As a church, we got right to work on that by partnering with Hope Pregnancy Center in January and February for a diaper drive, where we collected over 6,000 diapers in just a few weeks! In March, we threw a giant Easter party for the city and saw 14 people come to faith in Christ (many of which I’ve baptized since then!)! Later this year, we’ll be partnering with a few other local churches to host The Uprising – a city-wide evangelistic outreach geared at those who don’t normally step foot in a church. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
This summer, for the first time ever, after 7 months in the making, we’re excited to introduce…
Invade The City is a hands-on way to mobilize the church to meet the needs of others. On July 13-21, Awaken will be partnering with 8 different groups and organizations for 13 unique ways to reach into our city. We never want to forget about the community we’re a part of, and our prayer is that what happens within the walls of Awaken spills out into the streets of Clarksville and beyond!
Swing by awakenchurch.org/invade to read about some of the outreaches we’ll be a part of as we partner with these organizations in July. Signups begins online and at Awaken this weekend, July 22/23!
This is a call to action for the church. Buckle up. Let’s invade the city!
