We love our community. Seeing their faces when the love of God meets them is one of the best feelings on earth. Here are just a few things we were able to do in our community last year.
We partnered with Chick-fil-A and Becker Furniture World to raise 11,502 toys for children of all ages. Working, once again, with Good in the ‘Hood, the Shop With Dignity sites expanded to include seven locations in the Twin Cities area, including one right here at Living Word. Over 3,500 children received gifts and over 1,000 families were touched by the love of Jesus through this effort. It was the generous hearts and gifts of our entire church family and the community beyond which saw this realized.
There is nothing quite as life changing as being part of an international missions team. In 2017, teams ministered in villages, prisons, schools, orphanages, elderly centers, house churches, markets, and on the streets. They preached in churches, at conferences, and at Bible schools.
Surpassing the 700th minute airing this past fall, the Winner’s Minute continues to bring Word-based truths to the larger Twin Cities area, reaching around 105,000 people every weekday. The Winner’s Minutes also air in India and nationally on Believer’s Voice of Victory Network and GETV.
