August has been a busy month at Serving You Ministries! Between fundraisers and school starting back, we have been at full throttle all month long!
During the month of August, Serving You provided 222 families with food through our client-choice food pantry, Merchant Market. In addition to food, SYM helped families with almost $9000 in utility assistance! In total this month, Serving You Ministries served 494 people. Over 500 people heard the Gospel and received prayer this month. Praise God for all He is doing in Eastlake!
Earlier this month, we had a golf fundraiser at Silver Lakes in Gadsden. The turnout was great! We had 22 teams playing across the 18 holes all to help Serving You Ministries do what we do. We cannot thank the participants enough and North Valley Church for hosting the fundraiser!
Also in August, we visited the Lovelady Center for a time of worship and teaching! Thank you NorthPark Baptist Church for providing the worship and First Baptist Church Trussville for doing crafts with the children!
We also had New Volunteer Training this past month. It was a time for members of our partner churches, that felt called to serve, to come together and hear the vision of Serving You Ministries and our Hub partners. We had a great turn out and have SIX new volunteers signed up and ready to start serving this September!
In August, we also had our 3rd class from Hope Inspired Ministries graduate and our 4th and LARGEST class yet to begin the program! Please continue to be in prayer for these students as they prepare their hearts and minds to make the changes needed in their lives. We are already so proud of these guys!
We can never say it enough, but THANK YOU! Thank you for all you guys do! Thank you for all the ways you support Serving You Ministries and the work being done here. Thank you for the prayers. Thank you for the time served here. We could never do any of this without YOU!
Have a great start to the fall! We will check back in next month! Be blessed!
