Unity and Power Within the Community

By: Tyshemeka Hollins

During the month of June, Mooresville Soup Kitchen will be doing a community survey to see what the needs of our neighbors are. We, as a whole, need to stop assuming we know what someone needs to survive and instead, just ask.

We have teamed up with University of North Carolina at Charlotte’s AGIS Center to provide maps of Iredell County to see where the hot spots of poverty are and how we can better assist those who have lost hope.

We are looking for a divers set of community leaders, church organizations and youth council to bridge the gap of information to our future leaders and to better serve those truly in need.

The primary goal of Unity in the Community is to serve by developing and educating people in order to create safe, healthy, and working communities.  Carefully selected individuals (non-violent) who have sought or are willing to seek, to increase his or her knowledge base and to improve his or her life as a whole are who we are looking for.  We are developers that are reconciling, restoring and building better lives and communities.

Treating others as we want to be treated is what builds the deep, satisfying connections that all people desire. Without significant relationships, life lacks meaning, regardless of how many possessions or acquaintances we have. Are you treating your community the way Jesus modeled?

P.O.W.E.R. means Preparing Overcomers to Win Every Race. Overcomers are men and women coming over on the other side of life’s challenges. These individuals and families need to receive educational, personal, social, and spiritual help.

Come join Mooresville Soup Kitchen on June 24th, 2017 from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. for Community Outreach Time.
