Forget the Frock
Forget the Frock is a nationwide movement that asks Christians to forgo buying new Easter dresses and fancy clothing, and instead, purchase and wear a t-shirt from a charity that will use the funds to live out the purposes of James 1:27:
"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being corrupted by the world."
For the second year, Centerpoint Church is challenging our congregation to take part in the Forget the Frock movement. This year, Centerpoint will be printing and selling t-shirts in support of The Suubi Project, one of our global charity partners. Founded by Gary and Cheryl Sargent (parents of CC staffer Katherine Rippey), The Suubi Project operates a church, community center and orphanage in Luweero District, Uganda.
During the process of adopting three children from Uganda, the Lord put a desire on Gary and Cheryl’s hearts to “do more”. Being compelled by the love of Jesus to care for orphans, vulnerable children, widows and the poor as God commands in Scripture, Gary and Cheryl began prayerfully seeking the Lord’s direction on how they could accomplish that mission.
The Lord gave the Sargent’s a vision for a project that would serve the people in Uganda by meeting practical needs while sharing the love of Jesus. A desire to restore hope and change lives for Christ was born with the goal to equip and empower people so that they will be able to live self sufficient lives and have an effective impact on the future of their country.
