Feeding the 100

Jesus fed over 5000 people recorded in John 6. Some accounts have over 20,000 served on this day.  On September 9, 2008 THE CREEK fed over 100 teachers at Green Hope Elementary School. Why?

We wanted the teachers to know we love them, appreciate them, and serve them. We brought Chick-Fil-A for the teachers – Jesus gave fish and bread – we gave chicken, brownies, fruit, and potato chips. There is nothing like context of the times right?  

The word quickly got out. Yesterday, we received several thank you notes from teachers for the food. The biggest blessing was getting a letter of thanks from Andrew’s kindergarten teacher saying, “Andrew was so proud.”

At THE CREEK we are concerned with serving our local schools. We want them to know we are here to help them. In the process, you get to teach lessons to your kids of active faith. (Mollie, Luke and Jake helped us setting up the table).

We are doing this BECAUSE of our faith in Christ.
