The Big Red Food Truck is Coming!
This mission will begin on Friday the 19th of July and will be every other week thereafter. We will be “open for business” from 10am till 11:30am in the parking lot of Glenn Memorial.
We are looking for those who would be willing to help out. Please keep in mind that this is a ministry of the Appomattox Baptist Association and member churches will be assisting along with other churches in the Prospect Community. Do not be afraid to volunteer because you think you will have to be there each and every time we setup. You are only asked to help as you feel led to help. Here are the opportunities available:
Logistics: Help pick up food items; pack and unpack trailer (as needed); on site setup and hauling the trailer. Folks will be needed the evening before the food distribution and day of and you can help at either or both times. Pickup Truck with towing capability needed, but you don’t need a truck to serve. See Willis Foster if interested.
Registration: Greet people as they arrive and help them register. Keep record of when and where individuals are utilizing the ministry. See Linda Campbell if interested.
Escort: Walk with individuals and assist them as they choose their items. Answer any questions they may have about the ministry, strike up conversation so that we can learn more about their family needs. See Eloise Foster if interested.
Prayer/Discipleship: Ask about their prayer needs and then pray for them. Begin a discipleship relationship with those who come. See Pastor Jim if interested.
If you cannot help directly we are in need of old plastic shopping bags. Most importantly, we are in need of prayer.
17 But whoever has this world’s goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him? 18 My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth. 1 John 3:17-18 (NKJV)
