KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Some metro residents got a hand up Saturday afternoon in KCK thanks to folks from the international Auxiliaries in Ministry. The group is in the metro in advance of the national convention, which starts Monday.
To kick off the week, the group held Summerfest 2014 at Big Eleven Lake Park and the event was about more than just music and food. People dropped by for free services including food giveaways, health screenings, employment information and hair care services.
FOX 4’s Rob Collins had the pleasure of helping hand out toys to the youngsters who were certainly thrilled to get something shiny and new. The chairman of Auxiliaries in Ministry says Summerfest is a way for the group to literally practice what they preach.
“We want to make an impact in the city and community and let them know we are concerned about them anywhere from their spiritual needs being met, to food and clothing, and ensure they know God loves them and we do too,” said ministry chairman Linwood Dillard.
Thirty-five thousand people are expected to take part in the week-long faith-based event. If you would like more information or want to register, please click on this link.
