A Few Good Men Names 2015 Season Winners
 
On Sunday, January 17, 2016, A Few Good Men (AFGM) recognized its 2015 Season Award Winners from eight high schools from throughout South Jersey. Serving more than 450 student-athletes, AFGM conducted workshops on character and leadership, challenging participating football players to apply what they learned, and recognizing those who exemplified outstanding service on the field, as well as in their classrooms, churches and communities.
 
Summarizing what he learned on leadership, AFGM Award Recipient Aran Lee, a senior at Woodrow Wilson High School, remarked, " A good teammate is someone who does whatever it takes to help the entire team be successful.  A good teammate doesn't let good be 'good enough' for him, or for the rest of the team. He works hard and shows an example for the rest of the team to follow."

"These young men are ambassadors who represent the character, values and way of life that, when emulated by others, make our schools, communities, and the world a better place," said AFGM Director Curtis Myers.
 
Honorees received trophies and were featured in a special supplement of the Courier Post.  To watch the presentation, click here , and visit  www.afewgoodones.org  or follow @afewgoodones for more information.

Members and friends of The Perfecting Church, Lighthouse of Deliverance Gospel Church, Sicklerville United Methodist Church and K-Love answered "Life's most persistent and urgent question," by Loving Our Cities with a day of service on Monday, January 18, 2016 to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
 
The day-long celebration began at Winslow Township Municipal Complex with a preview of Dr. King's "I Have A Dream" speech, followed by a discussion led by faith, business, civic and government leaders on issues that persist today and how communities can work together to address them through service.

George Smith, incoming Chief of Police; Pastor Tony Harley, Lighthouse of Deliverance Gospel Church; and Pastor Steve and Christine Shuster, Sicklerville United Methodist Church.

Following the discussion, nearly 300 people departed for one of 17 community service projects throughout Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Philadelphia counties.
 
"As our nation and world is in the midst of challenging times tempting us to choose us -vs- them, we're grateful that so many joined us in making a day off, a day of service for our neighbors," said Angela M. Brown, executive director of Loving Our Cities.  "Our prayer is that our service transcends a day and becomes a way of life."

Jump into The DEEPEND!

We have no greater need than to have hope rekindled if we are going to realize God's intentions for us this year. God's brand of hope is very different than the weak "hoping and wishing" that typically comes to mind when we hear this word. Biblical hope actively waits for the fulfillment of what God has in-birthed through the power of His love. It's a longing for what's been revealed and is being made possible through faith in God.
