The 5th annual West Bladenboro Baptist Church (WBBC) Community Thanksgiving event served over 500 plates for the holiday, according to Ms. Pamela Bryant, the Social Outreach Coordinator of the church. The Pastor of the church, Rev. David G. Anderson stood alongside members of the church to serve and pray with their community.
It only took two hours on Saturday, November 23rd, to pass out 500 plates at the church located at 703 Village Street in Bladenboro.
Rosie Smith shared gratitude for the church, “Thank you West Bladenboro Church for the turkey plates. It was a wonderful thing you all did. God bless all of you.”
Ms. Bryant replied, “Our folks enjoyed the fellowship!”
Ms. Bryant also announced other upcoming events the church has to offer the community.
On Wednesday evening a Luminary & Nativity Walkthrough will be held at the church. “Luminaries will be adorning the sidewalks and steps leading inside where all kinds and sizes of nativities will be on display in the sanctuary for the community to come and enjoy!” Ms. Bryant added, “The luminaries are in honor or memory of loved ones. The money donated for the event is given to the Lottie Moon Christmas offering.”
Lottie Moon was a missionary who challenged American churches to support and send more missionaries to China. After her death, an offering in her name was formalized by the Southern Baptist Board, according to Ms. Bryant.
She stated, “The story of her life as a missionary is a reminder of why we must donate to the offering in order to help send and support missionaries serving around the entire world.”
