At the Regional Assembly held at FCC of Lawrenceville, the Youth held a “Youth Lock-In (with a Purpose!)” across town at New Hope Christian Church of Lawrenceville. Part of the “purpose” was a sandwich-making project for the needy.

An amazing and important part of this project is how many different Disciples of Christ from across Georgia participated. There were about 24 individual congregations involved in some way in this RA Sandwich Making Project!  The effort of making sandwiches reached out into many places of need in GA because of the coordination of Disciple congregations.

Nine youth members (primarily 7th - 9th graders) from Augusta Central, Lawrenceville First and Bogart Christian were involved. There were four “Disciples on Campus-UGA” students helping plus adult leaders Diane Bales and James Gibson of Athens First Christian and Sheila Hunter of Sandersville First.

Transportation was handled by Sage & Paul Appleby with the van from Columbus Central and Nancy Oliver of Decatur First, driving the van from Peachtree Christian of Atlanta.

Hosting and Assistance were Tracia Deal & James Shelton and 2 other adults from New Hope Christian.

Adult hands-on sandwich makers were Doug Job-Friendship/Evergreen; Jancey - Union Christian; Doug Ivey-First, Watkinsville; Suzanne Wages-Damascus Christian; Reeda Allen - Eagle's Landing; one more adult: Lee Thompson from Lawrenceville First (sandwich maker).

Distribution of sandwiches and hygiene bags were:
