Our God is an awesome God!! We witnessed him at work at the Thanksgiving Bash! Worship was beautiful, with wonderful music, liturgical dance, inspiring rap, and good speakers! The Keepin’ It Real Ministry team gave out backpacks loaded with hoodies, t-shirts, and toiletries, while an army of volunteers brought food and served a meal for 360. Through it all, God continued to provide, right down to that last tray of turkey (after we thought that we had run out). God is SO good!

Pastor Oscar would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to all who participated in worship, brought food, served, and shared of their time, resources, and fellowship. He reports that the next day was filled with very positive feedback and deep appreciation of a wonderful day. It was a day filled with blessings for all involved!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, and God bless!

PS – The next Keepin’ It Real event will be the 5 pm Christmas evening meal at the transit station located at the corner of Laurel and Sumter Streets. Why not prepare an extra tray of food, feed your family early, and come out to serve?!? If you are interested in helping, please contact the ministry at keepinitrealministriessc@gmail.com.

The Thanksgiving Bash is coming up soon! It is scheduled for Sunday, November 11th, at 3 pm on the stage at Finlay Park. Donations have been coming in, and volunteers have been signing up. We are close to our goal numbers! But we could always use more backpacks, hoodies, and as well as volunteers to prepare and bring food. If you would like to help, please email us at keepinitrealministriessc@gmail.com or call Pastor Oscar at  (803) 406-1724. We hope you can join us!

Oscar has asked those who are planning to serve to please arrive by 2:15. He likes to speak to the volunteers before worship begins.

Worship is every Sunday at 3 pm in Finlay Park. Following the Bash, the next main event will be the Christmas evening meal. This is served at the transit station at the corner of Laurel and Sumter Streets at 5 pm, because this is where the homeless can get a bus to take them to local shelters for the night.

Volunteers are needed to prepare and serve food, as well as be available to share a little Christmas caring and fellowship. If you feed your family earlier on Christmas day, why not prepare a little extra and bring it downtown to share? Please let us know if you would like to participate!

Thank you to all those have made donations for the Thanksgiving Bash and to those who are planning to bring food to serve. You are so very much appreciated! Thank you and God bless!!!
