Walnut Creek South Volunteers Host Barbecue For The Door of Faith

Walnut Creek South served a meal to the men of the Door of Faith recovery shelter during Mission to the City. 

On Memorial Day members of two Community Groups hosted a free barbecue for the men in the Door of Faith Recovery Shelter. With a menu of ribeye steak sandwiches, homemade pork and beans, and a huge variety of homemade deserts, the table was set for a great time of service, fellowship, and the building of relationships.

This the third year Walnut Creek has served a meal during Mission to the City for the Door of Faith, and it is becoming one of the premier events for the men in the recovery program. Staff from the Door of Faith and Hope Ministries corporate office attended the event as well.

“The advice most often given to these guys is to find a church and get involved. Then, watch how God works in your life," Mike Scott said, who is a graduate of the program and a member of Walnut Creek South. "This event, more than anything they are involved in during the year, shows them both what it looks like to get involved in the church and the benefits of it.”

After serving the meal, the volunteers plate up and sit down with the residents to talk about life and walking with Jesus.

"It is a comfortable surrounding, and the guys really appreciated the meal and hanging out after. It’s a great example of Christ's body working together and sharing the Gospel through interaction," said John Teeter of Walnut Creek South.
