Midway UMC: Serving the homeless
On May 18, Midway UMC in Douglasville observed Change the World weekend by hosting a breakfast for the homeless in the community. Pastor Frank Boone and several church members greeted the men and women upon arrival. Midway's men cooked and served a hearty breakfast. The women served coffee and milk and visited with our guests and made them feel welcomed and loved. The Midway Praise Band provided beautiful music during the breakfast. Prayer cards on each table gave our new friends the opportunity to request prayer from the Prayer Ministry.
Jere O'Neal, from Douglasville First UMC attended and brought Gideon Bibles for the men and women. Everyone was given a gift bag, which included a Chick-fil-A coupon and toiletries as they left. Everyone who participated was blessed and wants to continue the service to our neighbors. We all felt the presence of the Holy Spirit on this rainy Saturday.
