SPACE - Feb 05 and CWS

Yesterday I got the SPACE crew together to help set up the auditorium, after GCC had a big children's ministry conference. That was kind of fun, it was a lot of work, but there was a lot of people there, so that made it pretty easy.
Then we went out and drove around to a bunch of hotels asking them if they would donate some shampoo, soap, etc. for Cold Winter Shelter, later in February.
Cold Winter Shelter is a bunch of area churches volunteering their facilities for a week at a time in the winter to host homeless people in our county. It's a partnership deal with the local homeless shelter here in Howard County, and this is the first time that GCC has been a part of it. Personally, I'm really excited that we are part of it. I think its a great thing to do and we definitely have the space for it. Logisitcally, it might be a bit of a challenge, but that's part of the fun of it.
Our crew yesterday were all girls and me. (It's a recurring theme in my life...) Here they are in one of the posh hotel lobbies.
We will be taking teams and small groups to help that week with just spending time with the residents, hanging out, etc. Should be pretty cool, and easy to prep for.
