MMAD-Day of Service Recap
June 24, 2017
On Saturday, June 24th our clusters made a difference! M.M.A.D. (Ministry Makes A Difference) seeks to connect our clusters with the community.
We believe as disciples of Christ it is our duty to do our part to eliminate suffering, brokenness, and poverty in our world and the communities around us. Our clusters partnered with an organization or family within their local community and made a difference on behalf of North Dallas Community Bible Fellowship. Take a look at what they did!
McKinney & Allen Clusters
The McKinney and Allen clusters partnered to assist the Allen Community Outreach with organizing their Food Pantry. The mission of the ACO Food Pantry is to offer emergency and supplemental food to families living in Allen and surrounding communities. Canned food items, non-perishables, frozen meats, fresh produce and dairy are often available to families in need. For MMAD, the McKinney and Allen clusters organized donated food items in the warehouse and made food bags that will be used to keep children in Collin County food-secure in the summer months with their ACO KIDS Summer Food Program.
The Plano cluster conducted a two hour presentation on financial literacy and served lunch for the young men and women at the Douglas Community Center in Plano, Texas. There were approximately forty kids in attendance. The young adults were very attentive for the most part and followed along with the five speakers. We felt that they were able to take away some very important life tips on financial planning.
The following areas of financial planning were covered:
A. Personal finance
B. Benefits of having a checking and savings account.
C. Credit Score Importance
D. Auto Insurance financial responsibility
The Frisco Cluster had a blessed time in service and fellowship for Ministry Makes A Difference. The group partnered with Frisco Family Services to volunteer for three hours in the Frisco Resale store. All donations and proceeds benefit Frisco Family Services. Their mission is to help members of our communities who are facing hunger, homelessness and other urgent needs to improve their quality of life and achieve self-sufficiency.
Richardson & Garland Clusters
The Richardson Cluster is completing a home project on Saturday, July 15th. We will be doing some painting, light exterior repair, lawn work, and planting bushes. This project is assisting a couple who is battling cancer and other health issues which make it difficult to keep up maintenance of their home. We are so blessed to make a difference and things a little easier for them.
