To the editor:
My name is Lonnie C. Love, The Minister of Family and Children, at Antioch Mills Christian Church. Our youth are our future. I feel that every opportunity that we give our children and youth to grow in God’s love, they become productive outstanding members of society. This is one of the most rewarding parts of my job. As the saying goes, it takes a village to raise a child. I fully understand this to be true. Here at Antioch, we provide our youth with a variety of outreach programs, fellowship opportunities, and we see a growth in personal confidence and leadership, all due to God love for us.
On July 27, our youth will be hosting a summer carnival. The youth will use this opportunity to provide a family friendly event for our surrounding communities. During this time of fun, food, games and fellowship, the youth will be hosting a silent auction. All proceeds from this will go directly into the youth fund here at Antioch. These funds are used to provide the youth of our community opportunities throughout the year to grow and fellowship together with God in a safe, fun, and loving atmosphere.
We come to you asking if you would support us in this effort for our youth. We are seeking items for our silent auction. If you have any item/gift card/event tickets, or even food or drink item that you would be willing to donate to our cause it is greatly appreciated.
Our carnival is going to be on July 27, if you are in the area please stop by!
In Christ, Lonnie C. Love
Minister of Family and Children
