THE PENTECOSTAL TEMPLE YOUTH DEPARTMENT ARCHIVES
MINISTRY OF GIVING
Saturday December 20, 2003, the Youth & Young Adult Department
of Pentecostal Temple Church of God in Christ went out and ministered
to different shelters here in the Memphis area. We visited the
Seek for the Old Path Shelter for women and children located
on Linden Ave. and the Union Mission for men located on Union
Ave. We donated clothing items, hats, gloves, socks, shoes,
underwear, toys and books to these shelters. We also sung christmas
carols and a song entitled "I Need You to Survive"
by Hezekiah Walker at both shelters.
last shelter we visited was Youth Villages - Dogwood Campus
located off Sommerville Rd. This shelter houses boys and girls
from the ages of 12 - 18. We handed out christmas stockings
filled with different items to each boy and girl. We were taken
on a tour of their facility.
whole day was a huge success! We were blessed by blessing others
who are less fortunate than we are. It was truly a blessing
to be able to put a smile on someone's face and to let them
know that Jesus loves them and so do we.
