2017 was a big year for Reclaimed with events, partnerships, and serving opportunities that many of you participated in. A few of our favorite moments from the year are listed below!
Last year, we began a new partnership with the ministries Poiema and Rescue Her, which has given both Reclaimed volunteers and Unashamed teams the opportunity to help create awareness at Dallas hotels and motels about missing minors who are vulnerable to sex traffickers.
Restored Hope Ministries Work Day
Reclaimed teamed up with Watermark's Single Adults Ministry on June 25 to paint, clean, and plant a garden at the apartment building owned by Restored Hope Ministries! Thanks to their hard work, graduates from the safe house and women seeking healing from the ministry who have children can have safe, beautiful housing!
Glow Breakout Session
At Watermark's annual day of beauty, Glow, on July 17, we hosted a room that focused on skin care, natural beauty, and the beauty that comes from knowing Christ. You can watch the video on our Facebook page!
Impact Awareness Event
At an event after The Porch on July 18, over a hundred young adults learned about the basics of sex trafficking as well as our over-sexualized culture and helped put together materials for that month's serving opportunities. This led to...
Reclaimed's Largest Study To Date
In August, over fifty people took our five-week study! This means that many more people are now more educated about sex trafficking, its causes, and how they are uniquely wired to fight it no matter where they work and serve!
We teamed up with Noteworthy to write cards for a cause on October 29! Attendees wrote notes to encourage the hotel and motel staff members we would come in contact with at our hotel/motel outreach in November.
Give & Go Boxes
During this holiday giving campaign, the church body donated over a hundred boxes of supplies, which went to the Restored Hope Ministries safe house! This helped raise awareness in the church body which providing much need resources to a life-changing ministry here in Dallas!
Reclaimed exists to empower and mobilize God’s Church to REDEFINE a hyper-sexualized culture, RESTORE men and women victimized by the sex industry, and to REACH a world hurt by the abuse of sex all through the power of Jesus Christ.
