U.H.O.P. Atlanta Community Outreach Event

Summer 2001

On Saturday, 12 April 2001, a special "Community Outreach" Event was held at Atlanta's "Love Corner" to reach out to surrounding neighbors and raise awareness about health and social issues pertinent to the community. The event also introduced U.H.O.P. Atlanta to many residents who might have been reluctant to attend a service without invitation. Elder W. Brooks gave guests a tour of the sanctuary while Atlanta's Band "The Madison Redeemers" rendered soul-stirring music. Apostle M. Johnson, Pastor, welcomed everyone and extended an open invitation to visitors to attend services. As a result, Atlanta's congregation was blessed with a new member, Bro. Tellas Brand, who joined within weeks after having first attended this event.

Guest Speakers and community organizations participating in this event included Dr. C. Thrasher of the Rainbow Push Coalition, Sis. Stephanie Williams - Department of Family & Children Services (DFCS), Sis. Judy Elks - American Cancer Society, The American Diabetes Association, Dr. Hacker - South Fulton Health Services, Sis. Lucretia White - Vision Care, Sis. Ivey Adkins - Teen Bridge, Inspector Mayberry-Atlanta Police Department and Sis. Annie Rhodes.

The Community Outreach Committee consists of St. Pat Washington - Chair, Bro. E. Sparks - Co-Chair, Bro. C. Washington, Sis D. Washington, Bro. K. Cooper, Sis. S. Banks, Sis. C. Sparks, and Sis. C. Davis - Secretary with special boosters: Sis. Frances White of the Education Committee and others who dedicated time and hard work to make this outdoor event a success.
