GARLAND – The Evangelism and Outreach ministries of Mount Hebron Missionary Baptist Church of Garland, along with family members and friends came to the aide of families and individuals around the Metroplex this Holiday Season.
The church, affectionately known as The Mount, kicked off its Holiday Season of giving with Thanksgiving food baskets. Over 100 families (close to 400 individuals) in Garland and the surrounding areas were given baskets of food that included turkeys, hams, vegetables, deserts and fixings to prepare the meals. In December, the ministries hit 6 locations in South Dallas, which included under bridges, on the streets and The Austin Street Shelter, where they took busloads of food, clothing, blankets, hot chocolate and apple cider. They were able to share Christ with over 200 individuals and give them makeovers. The Mount’s Angel Tree Give-a-way was geared towards children who had one or more parents incarcerated. Nearly 400 individuals from the Sachse, Garland, Rowlett and Rockwall areas were given toys and clothing. Food Baskets were also given out to over 100 families for Christmas. Each family received enough food for a week.
