Grace Bags

Image result for Grace Bags for homeless

At this time, we are in need of someone, or a small group, to be in charge of selling Grace Bags for about 15 minutes after the 11 am worship service.  Grace Bags are medium size Ziploc bags filled with small items of food and some daily necessities and a lot of love, for handing out to those who are in need.  This is an awesome ministry, we have sold hundreds of bags and helped start this ministry in a dozen other churches. Please consider helping us after service. Thank you to everyone that has purchased and distributed the bags, helping feed the hungry people of our community. If you have any questions or would like to help, contact Lud or Wayne.

Contact information: Lud – 678-226-1726 – Labdawg@juno.com or Wayne – 404-788-0474 – walbigun@aol.com
