We were glad to join with around 60 churches in the region to bless 6,000 families locally with an Eastern Dinner and 1,500 families in South Sudan with water filters all year long. In Gloucester we provided about 140 local families meals, visiting most of them in their homes offering prayers and love.
This is not a one-off opportunity but a part of the life of our church linking us to dozens of others all year long. It took an incredible effort, and thousands of volunteer hours to raise the $100,000 for the project this year. We also will be following up with local families in need all year through the connections we made. We look forward to partnering again next year with the Easter Outreach.
The Goal for this year is to raise $120,000 and provide meals for 8,000 local families. We also partner with the South Jersey Food Bank to provide the largest source of emergency food for Brooklawn, Gloucester City, and Bellmawr residents. Just come at 10 am at 1400 Crescent Blvd to help and/or find free groceries for your family every 3rd Thursday of the month.
If you are interested in assisting Pastor Joe with the ministry if home visitations, please email him here.
For all who have helped us bless the community. Thank you!
