LAWTON, OKLA. – Over Memorial Day weekend, 15 members of the Lawton Seventh-day Adventist Church, led by Willie Brown, Community Service Leader, brought and served lunch to the residents of the C. Carter Crane Shelter for the Homeless. This was a wonderful event filled with food, fun and smiling faces. Not only were the members able to physically feed the residents, they worked to feed them spiritually through prayer and handing out Steps to Christ, along with information on how residents may use the church van to receive rides to and from church on the Sabbath.
Proverbs 11:25 says, “A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.” This was evident to the members who participated in this outreach event. Not only did this event touch the hearts of the residents of the C. Carter Crane Shelter, but also the hearts of the church members. Members are eagerly awaiting the next outreach event in the upcoming months and plan to do more projects in their community.
