Reflections for August 17, 2014

Belmont UMC’s love for Project Transformation is deep! During June and July, 40 college-age interns created day camps in five area United Methodist churches for 300 inner city children. On July 20, Belmonters heard the life-changing witness of intern Sarah Fuquay who served at Antioch UMC. In addition to supporting Sarah, Belmont continues to celebrate the life-changing ministry that Project Transformation has had with Keller Hawkins, who served as House Pastor for the 40 interns. We also give thanks to God that this year 18 children from the Golden Triangle Fellowship experienced literacy tutoring and social enrichment during the programs at the Antioch UMC site. With over 200 hours of summer service, you helped Belmont offer the grace of Jesus Christ to the city through the ministry of Project Transformation Tennessee. Thank you!
