Annual BBQ & Fish Fry







   We also do a free BBQ & Fish Fry each year that is open to the community. This year it was held on August 18, 2012.   The outreach is also funded by the members and any donations from the community.  We have music, horses, inflatables, and face painting for the children.  We give backpacks with school supplies, clothing, care packs filled with toiletry, haircuts, and hair braiding all for free.  We also have a mini voluntary service lasting no longer than 30 minutes before the serving of the food and a prayer station for anyone needing prayer.  This was our fourth year.  We started with feeding around 300, the 2nd year we reached around 600, last year we almost hit 1,000 and this year we feed over 1,000 people. 

   This is truly a blessing to the community. There are many families, individuals, and senior citizens who wonder where the next meal will come from and we are allowing God to use us as a vessel.  This is something we truly enjoy doing and we know that God will provide all that we need to continue to do His will.  We ask that you keep us in prayer.
