Peachtree Corners Baptist missions trip

In July 2018, Peachtree Corners Baptist Church took part in a mission trip to Nairobi, Kenya. Church members traveled there to serve people, including the orphans rescued by The Mully Children’s Family.

The Mully Children’s Family (MCF) in Kenya, founded in 1989, is a Christian-based charitable organization dedicated to making a difference in the lives of thousands of children in need — street children, orphans, abandoned, abused, HIV & AIDS affected and infected, desperate and neglected children — regardless of their religion, sex, color or tribe. MCF provides the children with food, shelter, clothing, education, medical care, spiritual guidance, mentorship and parental love.

Mike Small, the church’s Missions and Discipleship Pastor, shared a moving experience from the trip. “The mission team went to a village to help a family that lost their father,” he said. “The family hadn’t had any food for four days, and the team brought enough food to feed the family for a month.”

The mother couldn’t work and even struggled to walk due to a problem with her left knee, Small explained. “After she accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior, the team prayed over her and asked God to heal her knee and restore her to good health. The Lord answered the team’s prayers and she was healed.”

He said the woman was able to walk without her cane and move about freely, “…and rejoice with the team.” With the help of The Mully Children’s Family, the mission team also rescued one of her children because, unfortunately, she could not afford to take care of him. ■

on

A new church is getting ready to bloom in Duluth. Reconcile Church has a mission of bringing together diverse groups of people and fostering understanding through shared worship and experiences.

Nutured by Renovation Church in downtown Atlanta, Reconcile Church is taking root at 3200 Pleasant Hill Road, at Duluth Middle School. Pastor Sam Kang, who served on staff at Renovation Church, is following his call to lead a church rooted in justice + mercy in Gwinnett County. The Kangs also served at Perimeter Church in Johns Creek.

“We hope to provide a space to experience a belonging community, one in which we can partner with our neighbors and community leaders in a spirit of reconciliation,” Pastor Kang said.

He added that the church seeks to be an intentionally trans-cultural environment, “so some Sundays, don’t be surprised if you hear us singing praise in Japanese, Spanish, Korean, Swahili and English.”

Regular Sunday gatherings start on Sept. 22, 9:45-11:15 a.m.; doors open at 9:25 a.m. Services are informal, and everyone is encouraged to come “dressed as you are on Sundays.” A seven-week launch series—Be Reconcile; GO Reconcile—will be offered. For details and more information, go to reconcileatl.com or facebook.com/reconcileatl.

Stories Night Returns in November

Published

on

Gwinnett County is one of the most diverse counties in the South, and it’s also home to Reconcile Church, which is committed to providing a space to bring together people of different cultures.

The idea of Stories Night on Race in America is that stories can help to bridge the experiences of diverse people and lead them to better understanding. “When stories on race can be told, people are heard and advocates are formed,” said Sam Kang, Pastor of Reconcile Church in Duluth.

The most recent Stories Night took place on Aug. 25 at Shorty Howell Park Pavilion. Attendee Michael Aissen said that the event was “…one of the most impactful nights in a long time, when it comes to hearing perspectives different than mine.”

The hour-long Stories Night events are held in the evening, 6:30-7:30 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m. with light refreshments, allowing time to chat with neighbors. The next Stories Night is in the planning stages and is currently slated for November. To find out more about Stories Night and other gatherings organized through Reconcile Church, visit reconcileatl.com or facebook.com/reconcileatl.
