FUSION Gatherings

Sunday, March 5th 2017 10:07 PM

How often do we take for granted the clothing we have? We often complain about the style we wear or the brand we can afford? What if what we had was depending on the generosity of others thousands of miles away? Would our attitudes quickly begin to change? I'd venture to say that it would. 

We will be having another FUSION gathering where we can stop and evaluate just how fortunate we are. Come join us for an evening of fellowship and service. If you'd like to help serve right in your backyard while blessing others all over the world come join us for a clothes sorting at Brookside on Wednesday March 29th. We plan to work from 6:00pm-9:00pm. 

All over 18 are welcome. Contact Nicci Price 913-602-5801 to RSVP or for any questions.
