Sovereign King Love Feast

The holidays are the time of year when folks become much more aware of the needs in their community.  Toys for Tots, Shop with a Cop, and various other programs seek to meet the needs of families who are struggling both to pay their bills and provide Christmas presents for their children.

This past week in Garner, NC, several diverse organizations came together to care for a few families in need in what has become known as the Love Feast.  Sponsored by Sovereign King Church and in partnership with both the Wake County EMS and Garner Medical Transport, families were invited from the local women’s shelter and by reference to a giant meal at the home of one of the SK Church members.  There, the children received coats, toys, and shoes to insure that the holidays would not be a season where they went without.  The event has become so big, that each year it has been held at a larger home, and next year, it might have to be moved to the church facility just to hold everyone.

For the second straight year, the Love Feast has cared for a couple of dozen folks, and the hope is that next year, even more families can be served.  The exciting thing is to see the local community and businesses join in with donations to make all of this happen.  This year, Cottmans Transmission, Aversboro Coffee, Garner Medical Transport, Wake County EMS, Swift Creek Coffee, Allgood Refinishing, plus scores of individuals donated time, money, and gifts.

Thanks to everyone for making this such a great event.  Hopefully, the need next year will be less and the ability to meet that need more.  Either way, the partnerships between Sovereign King Church and the local EMS community continue to grow in both effort and trust.  Next year should be even greater.
