Energetic and Successful - Faith Communities Raise Funds for ICM
1. Amazing Grace! Revival Hosted by Ben Hill, Cascade and Central United Methodist Churches Donate $20,000
On May 4 - 6, senior pastors of three of Atlanta's historical United Methodist churches made children the central focus of their joint spring revival and ICM the recipient of three nights of offerings which totaled almost $20,000.
"Historically, church revivals have brought people from various communities together for a time of spiritual rejuvenation. We, Rev. Winn, Rev. Moss and I, wanted to take this church revival a step further by making a tangible contribution to the revival of justice for our children. And with the work that ICM has done and does on behalf of children, we couldn't think of a more deserving recipient," said Rev. Byron E. Thomas, senior pastor of Central United Methodist Church and vice chair of ICM.
Rev. Richard Winn, senior pastor of Ben Hill United Methodist and Rev. Marvin A. Moss, senior pastor of Cascade United Methodist gave their full support to ICM and encouraged congregants to do likewise by contributing to the offering in a thoughtful way.
The proceeds from the revival will give ICM additional leverage in making policy-level changes for children throughout Georgia.
