The sixth annual Together
for Lincoln community service day will be on Sunday, Sept. 22. Volunteers
from area churches will be completing 13 whole-house window replacements,
constructing four wheelchair ramps and working on approximately 25 other
projects around the community. More financial investment into the community
will be made during this project year than ever before.
Currently, all the volunteer slots for
this event have been filled. Together for Lincoln will not have a
day of sign-up in Latham Park.

The community is invited to a worship
service on the evening of Together for Lincoln. Lincoln Christian
University will host the service at 7 p.m. in the Hargrove Chapel.
Dr. L.C. Sutton, who spoke at the inaugural Together for Lincoln,
will return. He is professor of preaching and Christian ministries
at Lincoln Christian University and currently the preaching minister
at Eminence Christian Church.
During the celebration service, a
love offering will be taken for the Oasis Senior Center. All of the
offering will go to the ongoing efforts to recover the center after
the destructive fire earlier this year.
Together for Lincoln encourages
everyone in the community to take this kind of service day and turn
it into a way of life.
