God is so faithful! We are coming up on the 10th anniversary of Keepin’ It Real! There have certainly been bumps in the road, but it is God’s will that this ministry share the gospel and serve His people. He continues to sustain Pastor Oscar and the ministry. On Sunday, April 12, at 3 pm in Finlay Park, we plan to bless 500 homeless and less fortunate people, and we hope and pray that you will join us in our efforts! The Anniversary Celebration is our chance to worship, turn over prayer concerns to God, provide a meal, distribute backpacks with t-shirts and toiletries, and offer additional clothing.
If you would like to help, food commitments and donations of the following items are still needed:
· 5 turkeys, 4 hams, 300 pieces of chicken
· 400 servings of mac n’ cheese, 400 servings of mashed potatoes, a large pot of gravy, 200 servings of rice, 200 servings of sweet potatoes
· 500 new backpacks and 500 new t-shirts
· Volunteers who would like to serve food, help with backpack and clothing distribution, distribute cards and pens for prayer concerns, serve as prayer warriors, and help with other assorted tasks.
T-shirts that are seconds and irregulars are OK (and more cost effective). Backpacks may be difficult to find in stores this time of year. We have found a wholesaler who offers 24 large backpacks for $158 (with free shipping). If you and your small group or colleagues are interested in going in together on backpacks, please contact me and I will send you the link.
We appreciate you and hope you would like to participate! Thank you and God bless!
