Back 2 School Outreach 2019 - World Changers Church Brooklyn
On Saturday, August 17th we partnered with the 12th Annual Matrix Youth Fair Community Give Back. We donated school supplies to fill 300 book bags for this fair. Our volunteers also joined in the event and served in many different areas during the day to help make it a success. We put up our Church Information Table and Prayer Station, where CDs, DVDs, Bibles, church flyers and other books were freely available. We also gave out juices and snacks for the children in the community. When we had first started planning to join in a Back 2 School event, the community in which we wanted to serve did not want us to bring our prayer station. However, the Matrix Youth Fair not only welcomed our Prayer Station, they even asked us to pray over the entire event! Many members of the community were impacted, and in addition to the school supplies, they received prayer. One amazing coincidence was our WCYE leader happening to meet the Youth Program leader in the community into which we will be ministering in the near future. We have also connected with other organizations for future events we plan to host.
On Sunday, August 18th, we celebrated Back 2 School in the church. 33 children and youth were given $15 Gift Cards. Some children also received book bags with school supplies as well. Both children and youth had Pizza and other refreshments. The children also enjoyed carnival style games during the service.
We are grateful for all the doors that the Favor of God opened up for us and are looking forward to make greater impact in our community with each event.
