One of our first wholeness grants went to members of First Christian Church that are dedicated to making life a little better for Louisville's homeless community. Regardless of the weather, these faithful servants hit the streets once a week to hand out food, supplies, hugs, and above all hope to those often forgotten.
The wholeness grant went toward purchasing a tent to keep our volunteers and their supplies out of the elements, a portable table that is used to serve our guests, and battery powered lamps to provide light on dark winter nights.
Since this ministry started, several church members have volunteered to provide the items handed out lovingly each week. Now, many of them have also joined the effort and make the trek to deliver the supplies as well. In time, friendships have formed, connections have been made, and much hope has been given. All of that is witnessed in the video above.
If you are interested in finding out more about this ministry and/or participate, please feel free to contact Debbie McCune, Sharon Sapienza, or Paula Batcher.
The wholeness grant used to fund this ministry was made possible through your faithful financial support of our church and its ministries and help fund a variety of efforts to make our world a better place.
