Hey SBM Friends! Last year, we were blessed to be able to minister to those who were affected by the wildfires in Sevier County, TN. While we were in Sevierville, we also partnered with Tony Gore Ministries as they ministered to families in need at Christmas. The experience was indeed a blessing (photos below), and we feel confident that we have been called to continue our Christmas-time ministry this year, but in a greater capacity.
The connection that we made with Tony Gore Ministries has grown into an opportunity for us to partner with his “A Christmas To Remember” event that will be held in Sevierville, TN, on December 19, 2017. We will be taking a mission team to work with the ministry for three days by shopping for and wrapping gifts for children, veterans, and homeless in the Sevier County area. This year we will also be serving at the “A Christmas To Remember” event at which the aforementioned gifts will be shared with those in need, along with an amazing Christmas meal and care packages with food and toiletry items.
Additionally, we (SBM Ministries) will begin a new Christmas ministry in our own community in Southern Lamar County, Alabama. We plan to learn a great deal this year about the logistics of the “A Christmas to Remember” event in Sevierville in hopes that we can bring a similar event to our area in 2018. However, we still plan to minister to families in need in our community in December 2017. These plans include providing gifts for children and food items to families who need a little help at Christmas time.
We have collectively named our two December ministries “SBM Shares His Love.” Our mission is to share Christ’s love at Christmas in both Sevier County, TN, and Southern Lamar County, AL. We base our mission on 1 John 4:19 (AMP) which states “We love, because He first loved us.” Both of these ministries are dear to our hearts, and we are praying for God to move in a mighty way to allow us to touch lives and share His love at Christmas. We invite you to pray along with us. Additionally, we could really use your financial support for this project. Our Sevier County, TN, is basically funded and taken care of. However, the amount of families that we will be able to touch in the South Lamar County, AL, area will depend on additional funding for the mission project. We are believing that God will provide abundantly, as He has called us to begin this ministry. We only ask for you to prayfully consider helping us with this mission by making a contribution to this project. No amount is too small, as any amount will help us buy gifts for children and food for families. We have zero administrative costs for our Southern Lamar County portion of SBM Shares His Love, so you can rest assured that every single penny that is donated to SBM for this cause will reach families who are in need.
