Our third annual churchwide day of service, Go and Be, was May 5. Karen Hawkins, pastoral leader of community care, was one of the fearless leaders who organized and planned the event. This was also the first year for Stonebriar to host a Cinco de Mayo festival for the community in conjunction with Go and Be.Â
“We had over 370 [people] from our church family serving in 24 different ways, including a fantastic Cinco de Mayo festival which brought in around 800+ folks!” Karen said. “Many children came to faith in Christ as a result of our time together out on the sports fields as well as adults who placed their faith in Christ and many who asked for our prayer team to pray for them.”
Here are some great pictures from Go and Be!
“There were many in our community who saw and experienced the love of Christ because of our church family’s willingness to share their time, skills, heart (and sweat)!” Karen said. “All of these projects are part of the bigger picture of our ongoing community care ministry.”
If you are interested in serving our community, you don’t have to wait until next year’s Go and Be! There are always opportunities to reach our area with the love of Christ. Beyond These Walls meets monthly to discuss immediate needs within the community. To learn more, click here.
