Candlelight Remembrance at Lake Mirror, downtown Lakeland
A lakeside Candlelight Remembrance was held June 13 at 7 p.m. at Lake Mirror in downtown Lakeland to commemorate the 49 victims from the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. More than 1,500 people attended the event, and Christ's Promise, Auburndale, was well represented. Just before dusk, 49 doves were released in memory of the 49 voices that were silenced by the shootings.

NYE 2016 Believe Team Volunteers Needed

National Youth Event is scheduled for July 26-30 at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort Convention Center in Lake Buena Vista. The theme is Believe, inspired by the scripture Hebrews 11:1. We anticipate 4,000 participants from across the country and world. As you can imagine, we have a great need for volunteers to join our Volunteer Believe Team this summer (a cool t-shirt is included!). We are seeking volunteers who are local to the Orlando area and can commute daily or those who are attending NYE and have registered but don't have youth leadership or chaperon duties. If you fit the bill and are interested in volunteering, the first step is completing a mandatory background check -> here ->. Once the background check has been completed, our staff will be notified and will follow up to welcome our newest Believe Team members! Questions? Email youth@ucc.org to be connected with the program and volunteer coordinators, Waltrina & Jessica. We would be happy to welcome you to the BELIEVE TEAM! Thank you for BELEIVING! -> More ->
