“The Fourth of July is a big day in our little town,” reports Pastor Terry Daniels, of the Grace Brethren Church in South Pasadena, Calif. Everyone comes out and marches in the Festival of Balloons Parade.”
For a number of years, the church has handed out bottles of chilled water at the beginning of the parade. Even though it takes special permission from the city because distributing free things at the parade is not allowed, Pastor Daniels feels the outreach is important. “We’ve gained a lot of goodwill,” he says.
Yesterday, they distributed 1,500 bottles of water. Check out the images from the event for more information.
