"and ye shall be witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth." Acts 1:8(b)
In the second portion of Act 1:8, Jesus implores His disciples to be witnesses of the Gospel. What a great responsibility and opportunity for us to be witnesses for Christ in our own city every day in Bonton.
This past Saturday was I Got Your Back, our annual event providing much-needed school supplies to the youth in Bonton. This year we focused our efforts on nearly 200 youth and families who have participated in the BridgeBuilders Kids program over the past year. This was done intentionally to fulfill the first order of the Great Commission and concentrate our efforts on the families we serve in Bonton.
Prestonwood Baptist Church, Christ Church of Plano, and Rogers Healy and Associates Real Estate provided book bags and school supplies which were distributed by volunteers from the community and Young Men's Service League. Youth also received free haircuts from Bonton residents, and we all enjoyed food provided via the generous donation of Chick-fil-A Centreport!
It was a great time of fellowship and a beautiful glimpse of the Kingdom of God as the community gathered together for this special event. A big thank you to all our donors, partners, and volunteers who made this event possible!
