Big Things have happened at Serving You in 2017!
2017 has been a great year at Serving You! We have assisted 2,166 families and 5,814 individuals with food, job and financial training, and with $94,507 in financial assistance in times of crisis. Over 2,400 people have heard the Gospel throughout the year!
Through our backpack ministry, we served over 23,436 meals through 3,348 backpack snack bags. Through our partnership with Changed Lives Christian Center we have helped serve 970 hot meals to men residing at the center.
During 2017 we have had 16 graduates from Financial Peace University and 44 graduates from Work Faith Birmingham.
In 2017, we also introduced something new... Serving Younited Week in July! During Serve Week we had over 230 volunteers from 12 different churches partnering together to work all over the city of Birmingham. Mornings of Serve Week, volunteers completed work at 7 different sites including decking, painting, and roofing. During the afternoons, we had over 100 children from across Birmingham participating in Backyard Bible Clubs! The week ended with a shared meal and worship service! What an amazing time of service and worship for us all!
Thank you all for your continued support! We are excited about 2018 and what the year holds!
