September 20, 2014,
10:00 am to 2:00 pm
This year The Clinic will be held on September 20, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, as we turn our HRBC campus into The Clinic to those in our community seeking food, clothing, medical care, vision checks, haircuts, a place to feel welcome and a day to get some extra attention. Jesus set the example by meeting the physical needs of those around him; however, he didn’t stop there. He also saw and addressed their emotional and spiritual needs. At The Clinic, we do the same things.
Join in serving others in our community. Below is a list of ways you can engage in this vital ministry. You may register as a volunteer for any of these activities at the registration table in the Commons area beginning, Sunday, August 31.
