Friendship Unlimited Ministries presents Operation HUG–
Friendship Unlimited celebrated 15 years of ministry with our annual “Operation HUG” event for special needs adults. HUG was the first day of a two-event Disability Awareness weekend. Encouraging our special friends in the Lord and asking them to encourage others was the theme featuring a concert of: the church worship team, a special needs “High Calling” worship team, “Joyful Noise” a Christian rock ‘n’ roll team and our featured guest, Jennifer Shaw recording artist from Ohio. About 225 special needs participants, their staff and/or parents and a group of faithful volunteers attended the event. The day was successful because it brought glory to God by all the incredible things that were witnessed.
We saw the Lord:
We saw Jesus- we saw ordinary people giving extraordinary love serving one another.
We saw Jesus – we heard voices singing worship and praise that fill our hearts with love.
We saw Jesus – we felt the presence throughout the day “for the joy of the Lord is our strength” (Nehemiah 8:10)
Disability Awareness Sunday, with special guest Speaker Jennifer Shaw>
On Sunday, Jennifer shared her testimony and her gift with our Northport congregation. What a treat! She lifted up the name of Jesus with her songs and her story. Jennifer has a unique talent and a unique testimony, that both bring glory to God! Having her with us was a blessing.
