Church 4 Chicks began in 2008 with a desire to create and cultivate an environment of grace for women of all ages. Little did we know then that it was God's plan to create and cultivate environments (plural) of grace and not just one little group in Atlanta, Georgia.
Over the past few years, we've discovered more of God's unique vision for this ministry and we've experienced many bumps along the road. Truth is, as long as we're on this side of eternity, those bumps in the road are part of any journey.
As we've sought to be faithful to the commission given to us by our gracious Heavenly Father, others around the US and even other parts of the world have taken notice. We have received many requests to expand this ministry into other communities.
With this in mind, C4C is hitting the road! We've already been to Jamaica (via Cruise with a Cause 2011) and we're scheduled to be in Alaska this fall. Additionally, there are other open doors beginning to reveal themselves for this very thing in other parts of the country as well. It is our hope and intention to bring C4C into these communities so that leaders within those areas can begin to host a Church 4 Chicks for the women (from teens on up!) so that these ladies are given an opportunity to meet in an environment of grace and do life together on a regular and on-going basis.
To do all this, we need your prayers!! Unless God is invited to be a part of this, there is absolutely no reason to take even one more step. He has invited us into what He is doing, and we've answered the invitation with a resounding "Yes, Lord!" But we still need to extend the invite to Him as well. We need to remember that He is the leader of Church 4 Chicks and that His plan far supersedes any of our own.
There are also, as with anything, financial needs arising to make this happen. There are several ways you can help:
1) You can donate any amount to Church 4 Chicks which is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization. You can mail a check to C4C at PO Box 1447, Woodstock, GA 30188 or donate online at www.church4chicks.com
2) You can consider becoming a sponsor of Church 4 Chicks' fall 2011 series. There are different levels of sponsorship which makes it possible for ANY business, large or small, to participate and reap the benefits of partnering with C4C.
3) You can volunteer and help us spread the word--this costs nothing monetarily, but saves the ministry needed resources.
If you're interested in any of what I've shared here: sponsoring C4C's fall series, becoming a prayer partner, donating funds or resources, or just getting more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would be honored to hear from you and so grateful for your support in reaching women with the Good News of Jesus Christ and offering them a "welcome mat" to the next step in their relationship with Him.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and respond to whatever the Lord leads you to do.
