“Connecting with God to Change Lives for Now and Eternity.” – Allon Chapel’s Mission Statement
In keeping with the church’s mission statement, Allon Chapel’s Discipleship Ministry has organized Grow Groups, semester-long holistic small groups that are designed to help church members grow nearer to God and connect with the community.
Allon Chapel’s Women’s Ministries’ Grow Group partnered with local non-and for-profit sponsors to start a charitable event called Your Sisters’ Closet.
Over 1,000 gently used articles of clothing, shoes and accessories were collected for a clothing drive that took place in June at City Impact, a faith-based, youth development center in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Over 30 women from the community attended the event, and based on the outcome of this clothing drive, Allon Chapel is planning a larger event for the fall.
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me…” Matt 25:35, 36 (NIV)
