The Central Atlanta community provides spaces where persons with dispirate lives can join together and learn how to be neighbors and friends. The diversity of the community consists of the homeless and addicted, the elderly, children, those sexually trafficked, stay-at-home moms and more. The community is open to all who would like to visit and participate with us. You can financially support this work here.
Community Bible Studies
On tuesdays and fridays from 10:00 - 11 we gather in Renaissance Park to connect with our neighbors, share some coffee and study Scripture.
Women and Sex Trafficking
Our community streets are dominated by the presence of men. Some of these men are pimps, dealers and johns (sometimes all at the same time) who exploit and terrorize the women of our neighborhood. For some women, when under the watchful eye of men, they are hesitant and afraid to connect with members of our community. Others are not under the oppressive gaze of men, but simply enjoy the support and fellowship of other women. So we have created opportunities for women to feel safe and are free to be themselves. Several of these practices are Parish Walks, group and individual outings, and a small group gathering on wednesdays at North Avenue Presbyterian Church.
Art in the Park
Art in the Park is led by William Massey of Art for One. It is a chance for people from all different walks of life to come together and have fun, get to know each other and build transforming friendships. On a typical day you can choose an activity (drawing, painting, etc.) or participate in an organized art creating/learning activity. We also share lunch together. It’s all pretty casual. You may be familiar with the art project we did over the summer of 2015 that is displayed on the beltline called “The Art of Reconciliation.”
Currently we gather at Central Park (400 Merrits Avenue) from 10:00 to 12:30ish on thursdays.
Saturday in the Park
Every Saturday morning from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. we gather together in Renaissance Park to extend friendship and community in our neighborhood; or rather, we gather to have fun together. Children are welcome.
