The following outreach report was sent to us from New St. Bethel Baptist Church. Church Volunteer Network was honored to help support their annual Praise in the Park event for the Oak Park community.
New St. Bethel Baptist Church and First Baptist Tabernacle Church had their 4th Annual Praise in the Park church service on August 12th, 2018. Praise in the Park is an annual church service for the Oak Park community in which there are vendors (no selling), free food, clothing give-a-way, filled backpacks, and of course a church service. We were blessed to have 504 people in attendance. We gave 197 backpacks to school age children (Kindergarten to 12th grade). All children who wanted a backpack received one.
Thank you New St. Bethel Baptist Church and First Baptist Tabernacle Church for sharing with and serving the Oak Park Community!
