Thanks to generous gifts from around the country, the Urban Hope Community Church, Philadelphia, Pa., packed approximately 270 Thanksgiving meals last night (November 17).
Neighborhood families were able to purchase a meal for $5. The $5, in turn, went towards paying a couple of unemployed individuals from the church for the work they do in helping with meal sign ups, purchasing, and distribution of food.
Today (November 18) from 1 pm-7 pm the Urban Hope Community Church family is distributing meals.
Some meals will be delivered to houses, but most people will come to the church to pick up the meals they purchased.
- for safety and good conversations for those who are delivering door-to-door.
- that those who come to the church to pick up their meals will experience a taste of the hope of Christ.
- that they will feel welcomed, loved, and respected as they wait.
- that the people of Urban Hope Community Church are welcoming and will have the right words to say, ears to hear, hands to extend and hearts to love.
- that some would respond to the love they experience, be hungry for more, and attracted to Jesus.
- against impatience, entitlement attitudes, and deception.
- for families to attend Urban Hope’s Sunday service
- for hearts to accept Jesus as Savior and SUBMIT TO HIM AS KING
- that all who know and walk with Jesus would be filled up and overflowing.
