Back to School Back Pack - Macon
30 July 2017
Saturday we went out into a local apartment complex to give out flyers and evangelize. There were four salvations. Sunday July 30th, we had an estimated 292 kids/parents attend, 205 book bags given out, 275 boxed lunches, 40 stewards serve and two salvations and all prayed for!
During our annual Back to School Book Bag give away our focus was to minister to the Body, Soul and Spirit of every child, parent, family member and friend that attended the Event. We ministered to the Body by providing book bags with school supplies, additional hygiene products and a boxed lunches to the entire family. We also had a resource table where every parent was directed and was given information regarding jobs, education, housing, medical assistance, caring for the elderly, food assistance and more! We ministered to the Soul by greeting everyone with Love, a smile and showing care and concern. We ministered to the Spirit by personally praying with each individual family. We also gave out CD’s by Pastor Dollar.
