The joy of giving matched the joy of receiving this past Saturday as Turning Point Ministries held its annual Christmas Give-Away. This event is held each year on the Saturday prior to Christmas and is one of Pastor Mike Johnson’s favorite days of the year. Although Pastor Mike was too ill to attend this year, those who were there to help were happy to keep the joy flowing.
There were plenty of clothes, toys, and furniture on hand to be distributed to those in attendance, along with hot dogs, candy canes, and cotton candy. 50 food boxes were distributed to those who held the lucky raffle tickets and there was plenty of produce for everyone.
Heartfelt thanks go out to all who donated their time or money to help make this great day possible. It is truly a blessed day and the Turning Point families look forward to this day all year.
Pastor Mike Johnson passed away that evening Saturday December 18th 2010.
