Georgia’s New Birth Missionary Baptist Church is celebrating helping citizens during the pandemic and those struggling with ongoing inflation.
The church reached its goal recently of serving free food to its one millionth person since the coronavirus pandemic began, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Tuesday.
In a social media post on Saturday, the church shared a photo of members distributing the food and invited the community to join them for the big day.
“It’s here. 1 MILLION families will be fed TODAY!!! We want YOU to come out and celebrate this WIN with us!” the post read, adding, “We’re having an entire party!”
Followers expressed their joy over the news, one person writing, “It’s truly a blessing to serve the community in such critical ways!!”
“That’s real ministry,” another commented.
Meanwhile, a 69-year-old woman from DeKalb County named Priscilla Ward was shocked to learn she was to receive the church’s huge blessing that came with confetti, household appliances, and a check for $1,000.
Ward said, “I’m just overwhelmed by the joy of the Lord.”
