Be A Light

East Texas Area Church Members Assist Community
October 24, 2019

LUFKIN, TEX. – For the past three years, East Texas area church members have worked together to "Be a Light" for community members. From serving the homeless in Kiwanis Park in Lufkin, to visiting the elderly and honoring first responders, there is something for everyone to make a difference.

"My wife, Amy, and I were blessed to be able to reach out to the larger Lufkin community," shared Brad Minett, pastor of the Lufkin Seventh-day Aventist Church district. "It was a privilege to touch the lives of the homeless, the needy families in our community, the fire and police departments and nursing home residents."

Church members offered snack bags, literature and care packages to those who attended the event. The third annual event was organized by Tyler Seventh-day Adventist Church members Kianna Pennington, assistant youth leader and Meghan Boyd, youth leader.

"We had the opportunity to meet with some amazing people through this event," Boyd shared.
