We are thrilled to have partnered with Victory in Praise for such a ministry. Our crew goes out with the Adopt-A-Block team and fully participates with the ministry every Saturday.
Today we had our annual barbecue where Supplying Needs was able to supply most of the food and drinks that has come in through donations. Adopt-a-Block had over 200 hot dogs and 170 hamburgers to serve to the adopted families plus chips and drinks. The funny thing is more than the two apartments came out. There is one more apartment which is near by that the people came from and homeless people who live close by all came and received food. We didn't expect them to come but we had enough food for everyone. There were some that received not just seconds but 4ths and 5ths. And if they stayed around to the end they were able to take more food home with them.
It was a wonderful day that ran very smooth and had so much fun. Our prayer is that it built better relationships and broke down walls. We look forward to continuing in our partnership with Victory in Praise for Adopt-A-Block.

Awesome Church with awesome community events. They are not a big church when it comes to numbers but they do big things for their community. They are the type to roll up their sleeves and get dirty. They are willing and see the big picture. It truly is an honor to be connected to this group of people who love the Lord.
Supplying Needs was able to go to one of their community outreaches. They had a "Fun Fest" where there were free raffle prizes, hot dogs, nachos, cotton candy, games, stuff animal prizes, face painting, and groceries. All FREE!!! The community really showed up and enjoyed them selves.
It was awesome to see all what God is doing with this church.
A lady that works at the food ministry said did you notice not one of the recipients had a bad attitude. It took me back for a moment but as I started to take a second look and I did notice that all the people getting food were excited to see the volunteers at Calvary First Assembly. Everyone was greeted with a smile and everyone that wanted one got a hug. It really was amazing to see.
It was amazing because we have seen a lot of food programs and there always seems to be at least one if not more people receiving food are mad, upset, jealous or whatever the emotion is. But instead today each person who received a bag of food was happy and excited to be there.
To God be the Glory!!!
