This past Sunday night, Lakeshore Baptist Church hosted a wonderful Christmas party with the help of Hebron Baptist Church of Hebron, MS and Pastor Tommy Davis. We had promoted the party, but after about an hour before kick-off we decided to “go out into the highways and hedges and compel them to come in.” Several folks knocked on doors at the local FEMA trailer parks and invited all who would come. The strategy proved a great success. We saw a wonderful response as several families gladly joined the party. About three-hundred people gathered to sing Christmas carols, make crafts, receive door prises, enjoy fellowship, and feast on the holiday bounty. The evening offered a welcome reprieve and an opportunity to continue building strong relationships with the community for the cause of Christ.
