WHAT IS BLESSFEST?
Blessfest is an outreach to the homeless community in our neighborhood.
In Luke 6:31 we are told to, “Treat others the same way you want them to treat you.”
That is exactly what we are doing this Thanksgiving Day when we open the doors of the church to hundreds of people who are currently experiencing homelessness.
WHAT IS THE YOUTH DOING?
Pastor Josh and our Youth Leaders will specifically lead the welcoming and prayer team. You are welcome to serve anywhere you want, however if you want to serve with us we would love that!
You can sign up to serve at whichever time you can:
7AM-10AM, 10AM-1PM, 1PM-3PM (Clean Up Crew)
Our goal is to meet as many physical needs as possible for each guest while pointing them toward the only one who can meet their spiritual needs, Jesus! There will be prayer, worship, a gospel message and several free social services. Each guest will have the opportunity to utilize these free services which include but are not limited to, a complete Thanksgiving meal, clothing, medical, dental, dermatological, vision, haircuts, manicures, make-up, showers, legal and social services. Guests are also going to be given new backpacks stocked with personal hygiene items, toiletries, and scripture reminders.
Jesus has blessed so many of us with an abundance of material possessions. Thanksgiving Day is a great day to remember these blessings and to say thank you to the one who provided for these needs. “Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me. Matthew 25:40
If you would like to join us in blessing our guests, you can donate here or volunteer by registering. Each month we focus on collecting specific items, but please feel free to donate what you can when it’s convenient for you. Monetary donations are for the sole purpose of benefiting our Blessfest guest and will be used to cover food, supplies, and rental costs.
