Sunday Morning Outreach Story 10-2020

Sunday morning outreach (written by Lauren Strickland): Today Chris and I took a group to do outreach in the community. We had plans on going to one neighborhood, but God had other plans. We wound up driving around and stopping to talk to people sitting on their porches. We talked to several people on their porches and had just hopped back in the van to head to a different area when Chris and I saw a woman walking down the sidewalk. We pulled over and got out to introduce ourselves. The...

New Orleans Mission Trip 2020

We had an incredible trip to New Orleans this past week! While this week looked much different from the mission trips of the past, the word that kept coming up throughout the trip was obedience. We wanted people to know that they are loved, they are seen, and they are known, and we did not want difficult circumstances to dictate whether or not we chose to help people. In a time of paralyzing uncertainty, God still whispered “trust me” and by trusting Him, we learned this week that while...

Giving Tuesday

Dear The Walk friends and families, Your donations over the last several months have gone towards bringing hope to our community in so many ways. Your gifts brought smiles to the faces of 216 teenagers as chocolate bunnies were tossed to them in their front yards from our car. Your gifts provided 200 bags of food for families in our community. Your gifts went to maintenance and renovations of Building 229 that is so ready to be filled with the laughter of students again. And with each...

Our first intention is always to be there for you, your families, and your teenagers so know this was not an easy decision. We had hoped that would we would be able to have youth in this time to remind kids they are loved and give them a sense of God’s peace in a time of uncertainty. But in these unprecedented circumstances, we respect the decisions of...

Weekend Mission Trip to Atlanta (11-2019)

We took 8 of our teenagers on a trip to Atlanta last weekend. On Saturday, we found a small park near the Ferris Wheel where lots of homeless live during the day. We prayed for homeless people in the park and the surrounding area for a couple of hours. Here is one of the stories that Lauren shared with us that we would like to share with you: We met a homeless woman named Kathy sitting in the park. We went and sat with her and gave her a rose and bandana. She stared at the Rose and went on...
