|Ministers in Linden, Texas have joined forces to enable them to serve the community in a more effective way. With the economics in the condition they are in, we anticipate more and more needs of many who are facing spiritual, emotional and financial burdens, and in most cases, through no fault of their own.
The local ministers alliance has been able to help several in the past few months and plan on continuing to do so as long as we can.
We will meet again here at the fellowship hall in the near future to discuss any benevolent needs in the community.
