Fall Fest Outreach Update

Fall Fest Outreach Update

Thank all of you so very much for all of your hard work.  This was, by far, the biggest outreach so far and it went so smoothly.  So many people were blessed, many came to know Jesus and many were healed in Jesus name.  This is the only reason we do glorify the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Psalm 89:11...The heavens are Yours, the earth also is Yours; The world and all it contains, You have founded them. 13....You have a strong arm; Your hand is mighty, Your right hand is exalted. 14... Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; Loving-kindness and truth go before You.  15...How blessed are the people who know the joyful sound!  O Lord, they walk in the light of Your countenance.  16...In Your name they rejoice all the day, And by Your righteousness they are exalted.  17...For You are the glory of their strength, And by Your favor our horn is exalted.  18...For our shield belongs to the Lord, and our king to the Holy One of Israel.

We rejoice not in what we have done, but rather in what He has done through us.  Thank You, Jesus!! I look forward to partnering with all of you again in our upcoming events and outreaches.  You guys are the best!

Something I recently heard:  Where do needs collide with our personal burdens and passions?  When both meet, consider if that might be your assignment from the Lord. 

For His Glory,
Erin Herman
Outreach Director

Just seeing the joy and peace of Christ all day in every volunteer and staff member was amazing! Breaking down walls, misconceptions, and watching people from all walks of life to truly display the love of Jesus Christ. My hearts desire to see the body of Christ working in one mind and one accord. Glory to His name!!...Angie Phillips
I am so thankful for all the support, love and prayer offered this weekend. It was so evident that God was present, shining His grace on Shawnee. We are starting to see Shawnee open their hearts and compassion for those in need. My prayer is that we strive to help those in need and truly let God pave the way to a heart fulfilling movement for those in desperate need for the continual love of Jesus Christ...Anthony Rocko
So thankful to have the opportunity to be able to give away 25,000 pounds of food & necessities to those in need. This included 3,000 pounds of potatoes, macaroni and cheese, drinks, candy, & much more...Glen Blankenship
I truly felt God smile Saturday! Numbers 6:24-26 (The Message) "24 God bless you and keep you,  25 God smile on you and gift you,  26 God look you full in the face and make you prosper." His blessings came to pass, became so real there in that park...Brandy States
We estimate 3,000 people were helped at the outreach. We had over 540 households register & receive the groceries & necessities. Starbucks gave away over 650 cups of coffee. And Taco Tico's owner, Andy Lockhart, gave out 3,500 bowls of frito chili pies! How awesome to see so many people in our community blessed all at once!
This outpouring of God's love could not have happened without the amazing volunteers, who gave of their time, energy, money, & goods. Thank you to all of the churches who organized & brought out their groups & to the individuals who came on their own. Thank you does not begin to express how much appreciation we have in our hearts for each & everyone of you! You have blessed us tremendously!
