Many Christian organizations plan to put “Compassion in Action” this weekend as they distribute food in Duff, Elk Valley and LaFollette beginning at 11 a.m. Saturday.
The Stand, a local non-denominational ministry, will work with area churches to give away the food at Grace Age Fellowship Church in Duff, New Canaan Baptist Church in Elk Valley and the Dewey Hunter Center in LaFollette.
Mission partners—who met The Stand Pastor Joey St. John throughout his years of ministry— are paying for the food.
“What they’re trying to do, is trying to get involved here in the Appalachian Mountains instead of just going into the big cities,” St. John said.
A free meal will be served at LaFollette Church of God at 5:30 p.m.
The Stand’s regular worship service will follow the meal at 7 p.m.
Robert Green, Regional Fellowship of Christian Athletes Director, will speak at the Stand, and Brightgray will lead worship.
