Love's Attic

Love’s Attic

 

A place for need…Not greed

Love’s Attic is a ministry of the church created to assist:

  • those who are trying to re-establish their lives,
  • those who are trying to set up their homes with limited resources,
  • senior citizens with their needs,
  • those who are willing to share with other member of the church who may have an unexpected need but limited resources

 

This ministry exists to help members who are in need of items for their homes and are unable to purchase at the time of their move.  Love’s Attic is a ministry, which coordinate the surplus of people with a heart of love to give freely to those who are in need. 

The coordinator will schedule the pick-up of items from the giver and deliver them to the recipient.   Anonymity may be a factor.

There is not a cost to the recipient for the donated items.  The contributors do not charge.  However, the act is “priceless”.

For more information please contact the church office at 746-0422.

 

Let us not be found guilty of building bigger barns.  But let us be found guilty of sharing our abundance with those in need.

 

 

Coordinator: Lillie Jordan

Community Scholarship

Since 1993, we have awarded over $51,000.00 scholarships to Lizzie Chapel’s youth and Community Outreach students. The Scholarship Committee develops methods to build and manage funds from which scholarships are given to high school graduates who desire to further their education in an institution of higher learning. Currently, our major fundraising effort is our Annual Scholarship Banquet held each year in May at which $500.00 scholarships are awarded to each recipient.

Although the second Sunday of each month is designated for scholarship contribution, you can contribute any Sunday by marking appropriately on the church envelope or through our online giving. Please consider contributing an individual or family scholarship to a deserving student.

Twelve students were honored at the banquet on May 7, 2011; Angelica Bentley, Joenelle Frye, Rick Goodwin, Jr. Jasmine King, Rick Merritt, Renar Moody, James Pleas, Thelron Pleas, Trayvon Prather, and Kelsey Williams from Lizzie Chapel Baptist Church. Our two community scholarships were awarded to Erika Huston and Sharieff Powell both from Hutchings Career Center.

Lizzie Chapel Baptist Church is proud to continue its legacy of encouraging students to excel academically.

 
Angel Tree

For the past few years our church has been involved in the angel tree program spons ored by the Prison Fellowship Ministry.  The program works by connecting parents in prison with their children through delivering gifts at christmas in the name of the incarcerate parent.  Through the efforts of the Mission and Action Ministry, children of incarcerated parents are identified and contacted to determine how many children are in the home and what are some of the needs that our church can provide. 

Once all the gifts have been purchased and wrapped, we invite the families to our annuall Christmas party and along with distributing gifts, share the gospel of Christ with parents and children.

Facilitators:  Vanessa Brundrage & Modestine Davis

Macon Rescue Mission

For over 10 years our church has been involved in the support of the work of Macon Rescue Mission.  Because the mission of the Macon Rescue Mission is lline with the mission of our church, we cooperate in supporting services that contribute to the continuing success of the mission.

On the first Sundays of every month ministers and members hold religious services for the residents of the mission.  Associate Ministers are assigned a month to preach, and along with teachers and worship leaders conduct service for an hour.  The teachers have age-appropriate bible classes for the children of parents in the residence.

In addition, we contribute warm meals for residence and transportation for those who want to attend worship services.  Our church has been blessed to have members who discovered our ministry through the partnership of this ministry.

The Macon Rescue Mission is a very important asset to the Macon community and we praise God for inspiration and resources that are offered through their work.
