My name is Angel Thompson. My family and I moved to Greenwood the weekend of Thanksgiving.
We have found this city to be beautiful and filled with such diverse people and passions. I admire our mayor who has a passion for the community and stands behind people are reaching out to help those in need.
I applaud Sexual Trauma and the Child’s Place for how they serve this community through some difficult circumstances that they are there for families and individuals.
In February 2012 we made the decision to move to Greenwood to plant a new church, to build relationships, become part of this community and share about our God who gives second chances. One thing we have found is since our move to the south side is that our home has become a hub for youth to hang out and feel safe. As we have been raising support to launch this church I took on a challenge to raise funds by June 30th for outreach events and youth activities, and if I don’t meet the goal….well, this mama has to cut her hair off! One of the kids in our neighborhood asked me why I was doing that and I told him because we love this community and he matters. Some of you may have seen us in the community, my husband gives out FREE lemonade and popcorn and we also go around to businesses and give away cookies.
Don’t be surprised if you see us walking up to your door…hopefully I will have a full head of hair. If you want to know more about Christ Church 4Given please go to www.4given.name
Excited to becoming part of an amazing community.
