Good Monday morning everyone! We hope you guys are having a great new year. We have a PRAISE report! God is moving in Alton Park, and it is evident in this past weekends prayer walk! The walk was organized by pastors from churches all around Chattanooga, and community members even attended! They expressed their grief over the recent crimes in Alton Park, and the young men that wander the streets aimlessly, looking for purpose. They prayed for God to come down- not for vengeance, but for forgiveness. They prayed for more of God's children to get involved, and help carry the burden of hopelessness and poverty, crime, and gang violence, broken homes, and ignorance of God's infinite and precious love for them. By the time we finished calling on the Lord, the bleachers of the gym were filled with community members ready to help carry the burden. Thank you for praying in Jesus name. Let's keep it up! -the ENTIRE community of South Chattanooga

Good afternoon everyone, We hope you are having a happy new year! As you set your new years resolution, seek the Lord first. Isaiah 55:6-7 says, “Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that He may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon." Seek and you shall find!

Our hope with Christmas shopping, is that the kids would work on their math skills, meet done members if the community, and understand the true meaning, the greatest gift- Jesus, and how it frees us up to give to others no matter their background, race, or religion. And that's why we were glad to see kids buy gifts for their parents and relatives. One even donated toys to the Salvation Army!

It's a new week and we have plenty more opportunities for YOU to get involved with the kids and community YOU care so much about! 1) Volunteer to tutor a child, read to him or her, or lead recreation for a class for JUST one hour this week. -> Why? Because these children need intentional investments into their future, and God has blessed YOU with some AWESOME gifts! 2) Help a child shop for Christmas gifts for him and his family. -> Why? Because they won their shopping money through class participation and you encourage them and teach them how to give back! To participate, contact our Volunteer Coordinator- Kim Jonas via email at kjonas@thebeth.org, or call her at 423-266-1384 x.6. These kids CANNOT wait to get to know YOU!
