Cleveland County Volunteer / Leadership Meeting @ Rison Church of Christ
Oct 21 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

The CALL in Cleveland County will have a volunteer / leadership meeting at Rison Church of Christ on Hwy 79. All current church reps and staff are asked to attend. Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer to help us with a variety of tasks is encouraged to attend and learn how you can help the children of our county.

“WE NEED YOU” is not just a cute slogan. It is a serious plea for anyone that has a little time and the gifts to make a difference in the lives of children, families and your own life! You can make such an impact in the lives of others by simply giving of yourself to this worthy cause.

If the Lord has planted a seed in you about helping others this just might be the path he is leading you towards. Please join us and see if you can be a difference maker in the lives of children in our county.

Will You Answer His Call?
