Members of the First Baptist Church of Temple City will leave the building on Sunday, April 27 to engage in service projects in Temple City and surrounding areas.
Needy families will be assisted, a musical will be performed at a local nursing home, firefighters will be served lunch, AIDS caregiver kits for Africa will be assembled and hospice patients will receive care baskets.
Members will assemble at 9:30 AM for a send-off and come together again at 4:00 PM for a worship celebration.
Lead Pastor Glenn Layne added, "This event is called Faith in Action, which is a nationwide program developed by World Vision and Zondervan Publishers. Hundreds of church across the nation will be closed to serve on April 27. Our slogan is, 'Don't just go to church--be the church.' The church is never more the church than when it acts like Jesus, who went about bringing healing and hope to the wounded."
