After much prayer and discussion, we launched our evangelistic outreach to the Arts Based School behind the church. Each school day, several hundred parents, siblings, and grandparents line up around the church to pick up their kids. Seasonally dressed, our city prayer warriors greeted each carload with smiles, a Merry Christmas envelope with a nativity scene to color, Bible Apps, offers to pray, and other Christian literature. Our local, Christian radio station WBFJ came out to musically bless the event.
In consultation with the school administration, we discovered that there are 39 food-insecure families at the school. A $25.00 dollar gift card to Food Lion grocery was given to each of them through a school counselor. We also asked the families in line to donate food for others in the school. The harvest collection was abundant and included $ 150.00 in cash donations. Praise God for his generosity and thank you to all who participated!
Please pray that families will come to get food and that this will be a continuation of sharing Christ. We will receive prayer requests through the website to lift up at our Monday prayer time. Knowing, sharing, receiving, and celebrating Jesus and his salvation is the reason we exist.
