A New Jersey-based nondenominational megachurch has helped to pack more than 1,000 food kits for less fortunate children living in the area.
The Paramus campus of The Life Christian Church, which meets at an AMC movie theater at Garden State Plaza, helped put together 1,056 food kits on Sunday with other volunteers.
Terry Smith, senior pastor of Life Christian, told The Christian Post that the food-packing event was consistent with one of the church’s core values, namely, to be “enthusiastic servants of all.”
“And our church’s mission is: ‘to inspire people to the life God dreams for them as we spread His love in ever-widening circles,’” Smith said.
“We see community service as a foundational part of being a follower of Jesus. We want The Life Christian Church Paramus campus to be known for spreading His love across Bergen county and helping families in need is a part of that.”
Smith also told CP that, when it came to the food-packing event, his church loved “being able to see our people put their faith into action.”
“We hope all of the families in Paramus who participated experience how easy it is to serve our neighbors, especially during the peak season of need,” he added.
