We would like to share some of the past years events:
In the Spring our team along with 13 area churches joined together at the Tom Pack Ball Field, in Piedmont for our annual Season of Hope. Where we had a free hot dog meal, unlimited drinks, pop corn, cotton candy, games, bounce houses, and a lot of good gospel music. We had over 275 attending and were blessed to have several people pray the prayer of Faith with some of our church groups.
We made several trips to KY during the past year to deliver clothes, shoes, food, back packs full of school supplies. These are delivered to different mission houses and churches. They set up giveaways for their local communities and deliver items to families in their areas.
In August the mission helped Crossroads Baptist Church in Brevard, NC and Lynch, KY Church of God with school giveaways. Also, helped here locally at Piedmont SC Church of God for a afternoon of family fun that also included free food, games, and back packs of supplies. These three outreach along with other areas donated was a total of 675 back packs and supplies.
Our annual Fall Outreach for 2018, was held in Everts, KY, at the Verda Child Development Center. We had 80 volunteers from SC and 2 from NC this year on the trip, from 15 different churches. Our day began with a gym full of guest for preaching, music, singing, praising and many came forward to accept Christ, and for prayers for the sick. God's Holy Spirit was felt during the church service and all day and many were blessed. There were 400 guest attending The Day of Blessings, where each person received many items free of charge. Each person attending received coats, shoes, socks, caps, gloves, blankets. clothes, Bibles and groceries. The children received toys and candy snack bags. We also donated 120 loaded back packs, new underwear, socks, clothes and snacks to the local school.
Partnered with other nonprofits reach out to the homeless with items of warmth, food and Bibles. And shared items with our partners for their different outreach.
The ministry along with many sponsors in our local community was able to supply Christmas gifts to over 100 children. Each child received a coat, shoes, socks, underwear, 2 outfits, and a few things off their wish list.
