Angel Tree Donations Bless the Children's Inn

Written By Robin Weiner on 01/05/2015 | Posted in Congregational LifeMissions and Evangelism

Huge thanks to all who contributed to the Angel Tree for Children’s Inn this year, sponsored by Food for the Soul and our Missions, Evangelism and Outreach team here at Living Word!

In late September, our congregation was contacted by the Children’s Inn, noting above average numbers of people needing safe shelter and support. Their supply of basic necessities is stocked primarily through gifts and donations, as they strive to “pave the way to a life free of violence” for women and children in our community.

After four weeks of collecting grocery donations at Living Word, representatives from the Food for the Soul team delivered a truck full of groceries to the Children’s Inn on New Year’s Day. Staff were overjoyed when we opened the back of the truck, and they were so grateful for our congregation’s help in restocking their shelves for the coming year. The children from our team that helped with the delivery also had a great morning, lugging groceries one or two sacks at a time, learning the true joy of serving others!

1 Peter 4:10-11: Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.
