Church in the Park “Beard Brook”
February 13, 2011
Church in the Park is an initiative in Modesto, California which provides a place of worship to those in need including the homeless. The Plant-A-Seed Foundation is truly blessed to be a part of this growing church and recently had the opportunity to participate in a Sunday worship program. This is the story of that experience.
The weather was a crisp 63 degrees and sunny. Quite a blessing for mid February! We started barbecuing chicken at 6:00 a.m. The lunch served included: chicken, homemade potato casserole, homemade butter horn rolls, salad, oranges, apples, fruit punch, and ice cream sandwiches. By the end of the day Plant-A-Seed Foundation had served over 300 people.
In addition to a great lunch, Gordon Rumble spoke on “Time is Short” and “What if You had 30 Minutes to Live” from the book of James. The Children’s Ministry had over 44 kids who enjoyed their own Bible Story and lunch.
This day would not have been possible with out the help of the many volunteers who donated their time and resources.
