2021 is off to an amazing start at Anchor Ridge! Our team is currently planning special outreach events, mission projects and new ways of reaching and serving the families of the Appalachian Mountains. As you know, a big part of our service to the Appalachian Mountains are our large Block Party events. Through these events we are able to serve an entire community with food, hygiene items, toys, household goods and most importantly, the Gospel of Jesus Christ! in 2020 we had to pause these events due to COVID safety concerns, but plan to place these back on our schedule in 2021!
Last weekend, Anchor Ridge visited with Tomoka Christian Church, a missions-oriented church with multiple locations in central Florida. Tomoka sends several mission teams up to Anchor Ridge to serve throughout the year and has become a close friend and partner in our mission to spread the Gospel and serve those in need. During last Saturday’s evening worship service, the church staff called Josh Paul and Andrew to the stage to pray a blessing over Anchor Ridge. Unexpectedly, the church so warmly presented us with a $5,000 donation! The timing of this donation couldn’t be better, as we are serving more families than ever and need to secure additional food products to distribute to families.
