Thank you, everyone who participated in our outreach to the Phoenix Rescue Mission's Changing Lives Center. It couldn't have gone any better and we have all of you to thank for that! Thank you for investing your time and resources to provide a day of fun and blessing to a group of women and children who are trying to work through some very difficult issues in their lives.
Nice job SouthGate!
Pictures from the event will be posted soon.
About the Event
On Sunday, October 29, SouthGate Church moved our Sunday morning service to the Phoenix Rescue Mission Changing Lives Center for Women. This included a worship service for the women living there as well as having Children’s Church and Nursery care for their children. Following the service we served a barbecue lunch and sponsored a lot of fun activities including a dunk tank and bounce house.
This was our fourth year doing this event at the center and the women and children staying there as well as the PRM staff were very appreciative of our church and the investment we have made in the incredible ministry that is taking place there.
About Phoenix Rescue Mission - Changing Lives Center
The Changing Lives Center is a place where women, and in some instances their children, can come and stay for up to a year. During that time, they have the opportunity to work through life issues such as homelessness, addiction, and domestic violence. This program is donor funded and offered completely free to the women. Professional counseling, work therapy counseling (developing work skills), parenting classes, and education for those without a high school diploma are provided. Most importantly, this is a Christ centered ministry where these women are taught about Jesus Christ and the difference he could make for them in their lives for and in their children’s lives.
