PCM’s 44th Annual Block Party

June 15th, 2017 Posted by God's Love Bus, PCM Chaplaincy, Project Compassion Ministries No Comment yet

Greetings in Christ Jesus!

It is time for Project Compassion Ministries 44th Annual Block Party on Saturday, August 5th bringing the Love of Christ to residents in over eight nursing homes on East Grand Boulevard in Detroit. The Block Party gives nursing home residents the chance to gather on the lawns outside of their homes and to socialize with our volunteers, (both young and old) from Detroit and neighboring communities. They come together for one purpose: to bring the Love, Compassion and Joy of our Lord to His eldest children!

This year we are striving to ensure participation of our donors, churches and social organizations in our block party. Most nursing home residents do not have regular visitors and greatly enjoy the conversations, the attention, the prayers, the games, the songs and (most of all) YOUR presence. We are currently in need of entertainers: singers, musicians, dancers, clowns, magicians — you name it!

Please pray about what you can provide on this special day. Join the other volunteers for a continental breakfast, orientation for the day’s visits, and team assignments, at 12:00 p.m. at Iroquois Avenue Lutheran Church, located at 2411 Iroquois Avenue, Historic Indian Village, Detroit 48214.

Just before 1:00 p.m., volunteers will be transported to the nursing home visitation starting point by a PCM “God’s Love Bus.” Volunteers may also choose to drive their cars to the starting points. The party will conclude by 3:00 pm. Volunteers are encouraged to gather back at the church around 3:15 pm for a time of sharing and socializing.

If you are not able to join us at the Block Party, please prayerfully consider one of the following sponsorship opportunities.

From the manger newborn light

   Sends a glory through the night

Night cannot this light subdue

   Faith keep springing ever new.
