Faith in Action article on our Daily Bread
Ministry - May 2012
At FIA we learned awhile back that its about His kingdom, not ours. One of the
ways we live that out
is by serving other ministries besides FIA and looking for ways to create strategic partnerships
to serve our community.
For some time we have been serving the Daily Bread Ministry of Good Shepherd
led by Leila Myers, which goes out on Tuesdays to feed the homeless in Douglasville and show them
the love of Jesus Christ. One area of partnership has resulted in the Pantry and FIA providing Daily Bread literally with daily bread along with pastries and desserts from Publix. Each Tuesday morning we visit the Lutheran Church to deliver the blessings and pray up their work before they go out into the woods and
other places where our homeless live.
We met Dawn, a young mother of four, with her newest child William, who is
either crawling amongst the volunteers putting together the meals or strapped on
her in his carrier. Over time we also get to see his
smiles, laughs, and delight in every new expression on his beautiful face as he grows in the midst of theDaily Bread servants who come from many different churches in our community. We asked Dawn why she volunteers, having to take care of a new baby and three other children. Her simple, quiet answer, “I enjoy it.”
It would be so easy for Dawn to say that she has a baby and can’t help, yet, she finds a way to serve Daily Bread. And William’s family will share with him a wonderful legacy of what his mother did for Christ, with him there every step of the way.
Faith without action is dead. James 2:17

Happenings! Events! Scheduling!
As we grow in ministry and mission it is wonderful to see all the events taking place! Become involved!
One problem that does occur, has to do with scheduling conflicts. BEFORE scheduling a meeting or event, please call the Church Office
and speak with Leila, to check the calendar and to place the event on the calendar.
This is essential for every meeting or event (apart from regularly scheduled ones).
Thanks for helping us avoid conflicts!
