December Missions Spotlight

AIDS Resource Council of Rome

ARC began in 1994 with a small group of citizens concerned about the issues and needs facing those living with HIV/AIDS.  ARC is a community-based education and service organization helping those who are infected, as well as those affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Northwest Georgia.  Georgia currently ranks first in new cases of HIV infection.  ARC offers free testing on a walk in basis, counseling and support for persons living with HIV/AIDS and their families, and help navigation the emotional and financial challenges of a positive diagnosis.  Your contribution to this month's offering will assist ARC in their mission to love and support members of our community living with HIV/AIDS.

Mission Opportunity

On December 15th everyone is invited to a brunch with our friends of AIDS Resource Council in the Wilder Center dining room at noon.  Bring your friendly, welcoming self and a dish to share for a meal with families in our community involved with ARC.  Come and help pack Christmas care baskets for those too ill to attend.  Contact to let us know you're coming or with any questions.  The more the merrier.
This year we will pack 40 Christmas Care baskets for families affected by HIV/AIDS.  We'll be collecting homemade cookies, warm socks, and any self-care items that make people feel better.  Bring your items to the Church Office.  Thank you!
