Saturday, April 22, is Earth Day; it has become a day of service throughout the world. This year, we invite the TCSL community to come out that Saturday morning to help beautify the grounds on the women’s campus of Healing Transitions, which is our community outreach charity for April.
Healing Transitions, which used to be called The Healing Place, is a Wake County nonprofit that offers innovative peer-based recovery-oriented services to homeless and underserved individuals with alcoholism and other drug addictions. The program is specifically designed to rekindle a person’s desire and ability to return to a meaningful and productive life.
On the morning of the 22nd, we will be moving a big pile of mulch, picking up sticks and branches, repairing some small fences and benches on the meditation trail, and using chain saws to cut up some fallen branches and maybe even fallen trees (if we can find some chain saw experts among us). Children as young as eight can help with the mulch and the smaller branches. (They won’t be anywhere near the chain saws!).
Starting the first Sunday in April, we will have sign-up sheets and handouts with more details in the Sanctuary, the youth area, and the Fellowship Hall, but we wanted to mention this event now so that you could get it on your calendars. Many hands make light work, so please plan to come out and join the fun!
