F E B R U A R Y   2 0 1 9   |   It’s hard to believe we are already into February! We are excited and expectant of what God is going to do through OneCompassion this month. With the amount of dreams and aspirations we have to reach our community, we are reminded that God’s plans and dreams far exceed our own. “No eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”, says 1 Corinthians 2:9. What a mysterious and glorious reminder, that we cannot even begin to out-do God’s plans for us this month!

Each month, Karma Keg chooses a different charity to support and a unique, local establishment that generously agrees to host the event. You can enjoy drinks and light snacks in exchange for a donation, and all proceeds from each event go directly to the selected charity. Join us on Friday from 5-7 at Little City Brewing for drinks and light snacks in exchange for a donation to OneCompassion! All proceeds will go directly to OneCompassion. RSVP here!

Come to the Table

OneCompassion’s mission is to build up our local community, and we believe one of the best ways to do that is to bring our neighbors together for a free hot meal! On Wednesday, December 12, over 30 volunteers came together before the event to prepare, pray that the room would be full and everyone would come and know that they are seen and cared for, and serve the meal. That prayer was answered and over 100 people gathered behind the OneCompassion office to enjoy a free, hot meal at OneTable. OneTable is a neighborhood event series designed to encourage togetherness, community, inclusiveness and compassion.

The impact. 

This event series impacts relationships as it provides our community members with the opportunity to meet new people and build friendships in an inclusive, encouraging environment. Children are welcome and are able to feel safe and cared for at OneTable events, as well. With a bounce house, popcorn machine, bubble machine, and chalk, OneTable allows kids to “be kids”! For many of our guests, a hot meal is a gift. As they leave, we send guests home with to-go meals as a way to provide them another hearty, full meal. Our hope is that our community leaves OneTable with full bellies and full hearts!

The next OneTable event will be Thursday, January 10 from 5-7 at the same location, behind the Paper Co at 114 W Main St, Clayton.
