They will be offering stories and pictures from the trip at Rev It Up (1211 W. Main Street) starting at 7pm.  We hope to see you there!  For more information, feel free to email Sean (seanrhorer [at] gmail.com) STEP Pride for Parents Christmas Store, 12/4 STEP (Strategies to Elevate People) will hold a Christmas Store for parents from the Gilpin Court neighborhood on Saturday, December 4, 10am-2pm at Eternity Church (1900 Chamberlayne Avenue).  The Christmas Store offers parents from low income urban communities the dignity of providing gifts for their families without breaking the bank. We would love to bring several volunteers from City Church to the event to help set up before, play with children as their parents shop, and interact with the families over lunch.  STEP also needs gift donations! All gifts should be new with the purchase price still on them.  Please contact Lauren Massey lbmassey [at] gmail.com if you are interested in participating or making a toy donation.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
