SundayServe WAS September 28,2014!
September 28th was a busy day for East Central District. Please email Claudia at firstname.lastname@example.org a few of your pictures that hightlight your events and your stories.
Zellwood UMC had 10 different service projects. One of which was delivering food to local homes where they witnessed answered prayer, Door opened and the resident immediately started crying when she saw the food! “I am so hungry! I was praying to God for food and didn’t know what I was going to do!” Follow up is also being made to help her with a new pair of shoes as her (only) pair was completely worn out.
Rev. David Allen, Jr. writes, "I’m writing to thank all of you for your support and display of extravagant generosity yesterday at the Stop Hunger Now meal packaging event. There were over 300 volunteers of B-CU students and churches. It was a tremendous expression of our faith at work through head, heart and hand." Click Here to see more pictures.
