Second Harvest Food Bank

Posted on Sep 16, 2014 in Fresh News

As part of our October stewardship month, we have an exciting service opportunity for youth and families at the Second Harvest Food Bank. Our shift is set up for Saturday, October 11th from 9am – 12pm. We will primarily be sorting, inspecting, boxing, and stocking food donations for local agencies. Every one hour of volunteer time saves the Food Bank $21.79 in labor. Last year the Food Bank distributed over 45 million pounds of food to individuals in need in both North and South Carolina. They could not do what they do without volunteer support.

There is space available for 12 people total. There is a minimum age requirement of 12 years old with parent supervision. Age 13 – 16 years just need adult supervision (Joe Lublinkhof and Rene McCurry will be going), and 17 and up are considered adults. Closed toe shoes are required as we will be working in a warehouse. Stay tuned for transportation details.

Please let us know ASAP if you would like to go as space is limited. Contact spccfamily@gmail.com to RSVP.

Our new Interns…

Posted on Sep 2, 2014 in Fresh News

The new Family Faith Coordinator Interns are here! Joe and Lesley-Ann will be working with The Family Tree and SPCC. If you need to contact them, they have a church email: spccfamily@gmail.com

Take a moment to read more about them below:

“Hello, my name is Joe Lublinkhof.  I currently live in Charlotte with my wife Caroline and our little dog Winkler.  I graduated from Appalachian State University in 2006 and went on to work for Habitat for Humanity.  I currently serve as a youth leader at Caldwell Presbyterian.  I love to cook, garden, camp and travel.  I am excited to become a part of The Family Tree community in sharing and participating in God’s love.”  

Lesley-Ann Hix just graduated from McAfee School of Theology in Atlanta, with an MDiv in Global Christianity.  With a Spanish background and a passion for cross-cultural ministry, she’s hoping to eventually follow God far, far south.  She loves being behind the camera, but she’s learning that being in the pulpit is just as much fun.  During seminary, she spent a lot of time with the youth at Park Avenue Baptist in Atlanta, helping with homework and learning about their days.  She works as the designer for McAfee’s online magazine, Tableaux.  On days off, she loves to hike, read, consume large amounts of coffee and hang out with Netflix. Lesley-Ann Hix moved from Atlanta to Charlotte to live and work with us.
