THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

Outreach Mobile Lunch Ministry - Christmas Day

What an amazing way to spend Christmas Morning, preparing our mobile lunches for delivery.  Approximately 30+ individuals showed up to receive the lunches and food provided by our Outreach Ministry.  In addition to the food.  Each recipient was given a sweatshirt or fleece jacket (collected by Youth Ministry during the Coat Drive) to provide some additional warm during the harsh winter months. (Some reflection of Christmas morning coming soon)
