TDCWL – Thank You

A message from Judy Lecroy (Co-Director of TDCWL):

I wish I had the vocabulary to sufficiently thank you for all your hard work today and preparation days for today. You are a special group of people—caring about the disadvantaged more than your own comfort and enjoyment. You sacrificed to help many. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I love working with you! Thank you again.

May God richly bless you!


Save the Date: TDCWL 2017

Jesus commanded us to love our neighbors.  Touching Davidson County with Love, a community mission activity, was born to help us fulfill this command.  2015 was the tenth year of celebrating TDCWL, and fifteen Davidson County churches joined together last April to conduct a one-day demonstration of love for the needy.  The churches represented a variety of denominations.

The next Touching Davidson County with Love is April 22, 2017.

We would love to have you involved in 2017!

Here is our outline of activity:
–In January all interested churches will select one or more representatives to serve on the TDCWL Steering Committee.
–There will probably be a meeting of the Steering Committee each month until the day of Touching Davidson County with Love.
–For several months, we will be searching for projects that will demonstrate our love for the needy.  Possibly projects include but not limited to building wheelchair ramps, visiting nursing homes, singing at nursing homes, making blankets for abused children, cleaning yards, delivering food and other gifts, making repairs, cleaning up camps to get ready for the summer and many other ideas that you may suggest.

For more information or to sign up to participate, please use our contact us page to get involved in this priceless local ministry.

As in the past, viable projects are now being sought from welfare agencies in the county. Individuals may also suggest projects. Churches may form teams to complete projects, or individuals may sign up for particular projects. These possibili­ties will be distributed to each church in March. Some of the proposed activities include preparing food, painting, cleaning yards, gardening, housecleaning, small home repairs and construction, visiting and/or singing at nursing homes, making baby blankets, etc.

We need project managers and other volunteers at First Baptist. TDCWL began at First Baptist in 2007, so the leadership team will certainly be counting on our members to make the day a success.

If you are willing to serve as a project manager, please send that information to one of the following:

Judy LeCroy at 249-3766 or
Kay Albright, 248-4130 or
