OKLAHOMA CITY – Time is nearing for the Southwestern Union’s 2019 More Compassion mission outreach. Our More Compassion outreach has become an annual ministry opportunity where youth, young adults and adults come together to do mission projects within the territory of the Southwestern Union.
In 2018, we went to Houston, Texas, to help with the repairs after the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. The previous year, 2017, we were in New Orleans, Louisiana, helping to restore the city from a tornado that had just touched down, as well as adopting grandparents at local nursing homes, providing haircuts for the homeless, sharing goody bags in the city and holding spiritual revivals at local churches in the evening.
We are excited for the opportunity to serve with “Living with More Compassion” in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, from Wednesday, March 6 through Saturday, March 9. Our goal is to be the heart, hands and feet of Jesus for the people of Oklahoma City and surrounding areas. A variety of different projects to help the homeless and those in need are being planned for Thursday and Friday, followed by worship experiences for Friday evening and Saturday. A More Compassion parade/rally to include Pathfinders and Master Guides in Class A uniforms and all who want to participate from Oklahoma City and surrounding areas will be held on Saturday afternoon. Following sunset, participants will be able to fellowship and play sports and games together at the local YMCA.
More Compassion is for high school students, young adults, and adults. Registration will be required for all volunteers and chaperones so that lodging and meals can be provided. Even if you are from a church within the Oklahoma City area, please register so we can provide lunch on Saturday, T-shirts and other supplies.
