Since 2015, in the wake of the rioting following the death of Freddy Gray, members of the church of Christ have  been evangelizing and performing outreach in the Sandtown-Winchester and Harlem Park communities of West Baltimore, Maryland. Over the years, these communities have experienced extreme poverty, economic depression, high addiction rates, and high rates of joblessness and crime. To meet the needs of these communities, the church of Christ has stood in the gap to deliver services and provide spiritual education.  In addition to weekly bible studies for children and adults, the church of Christ is meeting the needs of the community through community clean-ups, sponsoring a free community health fair, conducting backpack and school supply giveaways, and coordinating clothing giveaways. Since September 2017, the church of Christ has held a Community Preaching Series, two Sundays a month, at the Lillian Jones Recreation Center in Sandtown-Winchester. In that time, 6 souls have obeyed the Gospel and been baptized into Christ. In order to continue this life-changing, soul-saving work, your donations are needed. This evangelism mission is affiliated with the Church of Christ in East Baltimore, and all donations will be used for the sole purpose of continuing to fund the mission work in the Sandtown-Winchester and Harlem Park communities. On the Web: http://www.churchofchristsandtown.org/  Thursday evening Bible Study, 5:30pm for children, 6:30pm for adults. Sunday Worship Services, 11am followed by refreshments and Bible Study -- 2nd and 3rd Sundays monthly.

Summer is here, and we're gearing up for our second year of preaching and worship, and our 4th year of seeding the community in Sandtown, West Baltimore. With your love and support, we have been able to continue our efforts with doorknocking, youth and adult bible study, teen activities, and a career and resource fair. In August, we are conducting our 4th annual backpack and school supply giveaway, and we look forward to finding new ways to present the Gospel message to the community. Our next worship service will be held on July 8 at 11am, Lillian Jones Recreation Center, 1310 N. Stricker Street, Baltimore MD 21217. We love you, and God bless you!!

The Sandtown seeding is going well. We have baptized 4 Souls since January, established our Discipleship care group, and we are preparing for men's leadership training and Women's Bible study. Our children still meet with us every Thursday for children's Bible study and our adult Bible study is still going strong. We could not do this without your continued support! We are worshipping next Sunday, May 13 at 11am. JOIN US!
