The St. Luke Lutheran Church reached out to the community July 11.
They hosted their community day at the church. It featured face painting, raffles, and music. Pastor Marjorie McDaniel-Burnett said they just finished vocation bible school and felt this was the perfect day to keep the fun going.
“We thought we would end up community day where we as Christians go out into the community and take what we believe is Christ, we represent him, and so one of things that we wanted to do was to just let the community know we’re here and invite them to be a part of what we’re doing,” said Pastor Majorie McDaniel-Burnett.
The day also featured a canine demonstration, and the fire department stopped by. Burnett said the church feels that in this time of need, it’s their responsibility to reach out and send positive messages to those in the local community.
“We’re living in a day and time where there are so many senseless killings and people not caring about one another and as representatives of Christ we wanted to make sure that we do our part in this particular community,” said Burnett.
Those in attendance even got the chance to learn a line dance, and the weather offered the perfect setting for the outdoor event.
