LETTERS: Thanks to local churches helping kids in need

When it comes to caring for "the least of these," our homeless children (there were 260 in the Rockdale School System alone last year) and their families in our community, the following churches rose above their differences to join together to do God's work through Family Promise of NewRock. I hope you will join me in thanking them for their selflessness.

Host Congregations:

Epiphany Lutheran, Conyers

St. Pius X Catholic, Conyers

Smyrna Presbyterian, Conyers

Life Church, Conyers

Conyers First UMC, Conyers

Rockdale Baptist, Conyers

Rockdale Alliance, Conyers

Allen Memorial UMC, Oxford

Milstead Baptist, Milstead

Conyers First Baptist, Conyers

Trinity Baptist, Conyers

Conyers Presbyterian, Conyers

New Life in Christ Baptist, Conyers

Support Congregations:

Grace UMC, Covington

These congregations recognize that together a difference can be made here and now and with their devotion to serve "their neighbors," we will begin to care for families the week of Nov. 13. There is always room for other congregations to join us as a Host or Support congregation or for businesses and individuals who just want to volunteer their time, talent and/or treasure.
