Caring for People: First church, Fort Meade, FL
Our church has about 35 members (20 active) representing seven families, plus about five winter visitor families. Last year we decided to bring food each Sunday for HELP (the local ministry for needy families/persons) and with HELP’s guidance determined what foods were needed. So one month we bring rice, another powdered milk, etc. This little church provides an amazing amount of food each month. Several other churches heard about what we were doing and joined in. The result is amazing!...The church is a leader in local efforts to support “Relay for Life” Cancer Research....We provide water for walkers, a place for rest, plus pledge $1,000 for the cancer drive.
