Community Outreach

 

We are very excited about our outreach plans! In January, 2013, our leadership met with Dr. Phil Maynard and established outreach ministry goals for our church.

They are:

1) To adopt Lake Alfred Elementary School.

On Wednesday, May 8, 2013, we cooked a delicious steak dinner for the teachers at Lake Alfred Elementary School as a way of saying "Thank you for all you do for our children." We were blessed to meet such caring, dedicated and wonderful teachers and staff! Special thanks to Matt Burkett, Principal and Noel Wynn, President of the Lake Alfred PTO for their help and support!
 

Future plans are to help in meeting the pressing needs of children and their families, mentoring children, planning and implementing teacher/staff appreciation projects.

 

2) Day of Grace community service projects. 

We joined with our brothers and sisters at First Baptist Church of Lake Alfred doing repairs, yard work and other chores for the community. We helped with yard work for two members as well as the Lake Alfred Assisted Living Facility.
