Back to School - Macon
31 July 2016
We served our community by ministering to the body, soul and spirit through our Back to School Event.
We ministered to 175 children, 70 parents and gave out 270 boxed lunches with dental hygiene kits. 49 families were personally ministered to and was shown the love of God!
It gave WCC Macon the exposure that we are a church actively involved in our community. We identified top needs for the families that came to the event which was #1 Finances, #2 Spiritual Growth, #3 Need of a job, #4 Medical help, #5 Transportation. We had 15 Salvations and 2 re dedications!! Our goal is to follow-up with those that were saved and provide the families referral resources to assist with meeting their needs.
The most significant moments were seeing the families prayed for by our teams and many accepting Christ.
Being actively involved as a member we can appreciate spreading the gospel of grace and showing the culture of care to those in our community. Seeing the volunteers loving on the people and sharing Jesus with them was truly significant.
The event was very impactful for our community and our church. Our goal was to make a lasting impact in the families lives and we praise God for all that was done. We had 39 volunteers that assisted and we believe that people are involved it will breathe commitment in assisting with our other upcoming events for community outreach.
