Sharing our Story

Our capacity to serve others increases when we share our story. Here are a few ways we have shared recently.  

AWFUMC's Older Adult Ministries recently held an event called "One Day: The Best is Yet to Come."  Bishop David Graves was the keynote speaker, and Laurel and Fred Blackwell, Communities of Transformation Coordinators, spoke in a breakout session. COT was selected to receive the day's offering, and we would like to express our appreciation for those gifts which will be used to strengthen this ministry outreach.

 

Communities of Transformation was recently featured in River Region's Journey magazine. Click HERE to read the story.   

 

Mobile site coordinator Katy Wrona was interviewed for WKRG's FaithTime which airs on Sunday mornings in the Mobile area. Click HERE to watch the interview.

 

Celebrations

As summer winds down, two of our sites held celebrations for the participants who have worked to complete the Awaken curriculum.

Dothan volunteer Pem Helms shared these thoughts:

This class of participants clearly stood out!  As they expressed their experience at our Celebration, those around me and I felt the love.  They genuinely embraced and connected to their community.  We are looking forward to the next season of COT.  There is so much potential within this group of amazing people.  As we move along, we have high hopes!

Dothan site coordinator Tara Sanders had this to say: 

We have been so blessed with this group of people.  They have committed themselves to changing their situations.  By completing the Awaken class they have taken the first step in balancing their lives.  We are looking forward to matching them with their new volunteers and seeing them set and meet their goals.
 

 

Brewton COT had five participants successfully complete Leadership Training. They had a great turnout of twenty-nine guests to celebrate the class. Shae Hines, Irene Johnson, and Brenda Stallworth helped make this night special for all involved!

 

Taste and See Events

September means back to school, back to a routine, and new beginnings at COT! Many of our sites hosted Taste and See events to welcome new participants and volunteers.
