Emmanuel Center continues the spirit of giving after the Holidays

 

Emmanuel Family Life CenterClarksville, TN – On January 8th, 2012, members of First Missionary Baptist Church served a buffet style meal to the homeless and other members of the Clarksville community in need at the Emmanuel Family Life Center.

“Church is more than meeting once a week in a building. Our goal is to use outreach programs to show the love of Christ as we minister to people’s natural needs while at the same time planting seeds to minister to their spiritual needs” commented FMBC member Kimberly Wiggins.

Youth from the LEAP Intern Program aided the church members in set up, serving food, and cleaning up. Lead Mentor Kenny Bennett has this to say, “Several kids really impressed me today. Although some are obligated to perform community service, it touched me to see the genuine desire in Diente and Damario Gunn to want to help someone else in need.”

Aside from regularly feeding the hungry, First Missionary Baptist Church also has a clothing close and opens the doors for the Emmanuel Family Life Center for those lacking shelter to enjoy various activities such as movies, sports, games, and exercise.
