One of The Church at Acworth’s (TCA) values is, reaching the lost. Though there are numerous ways anyone can achieve this vision, the Lord highlighted the verses in Luke 14:13-14 as one of the ways we were to help the needy around us.
"But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous."
While we were unsure as to whom or how we could connect with those in need in our area, God introduced us to an existing weekly program near our church. This program focuses on underprivileged children who live in low-income areas of Cobb/Cherokee counties. It became apparent to us that this program coincided with normal dinner hours. Immediately, we saw this as an opportunity to provide a hot meal for these children before they attend this program’s Bible study.
Due to the current COVID-19 conditions and social distancing protocols, The Shepherd's Plate and its' activities are postponed until further notice!
It is our deepest desire, that as these restrictions are lifted soon and we will be able to once again serve the children of our community.
