Family Life Church gives back to National Guard

They’ve come out to be a blessing today and to help us get this job done,” said Coudriet. Coudriet said the process began with volunteers social distancing and making sure the gift boxes were properly sanitized. “We’ve separated them, we are now packing them and of course everybody serving here is wearing a mask and is taking precautions as they pack,” said Coudriet. Coudriet said the National Guard is another group on a long list that the church is trying to help during a time of need. VESTAL (WBNG) – On Saturday, in the basement of Family Life Church, volunteers prepared 250 gift boxes for men and women deployed with the New York State National Guard. “It’s our mission to lead people into a relationship with Jesus Christ, we glory God, grow together and give to others. Those are the three pillars on which our church stands,” said Coudriet. Once the boxes are packed, they will be prepared to be shipped to the National Guard armories who will spread them throughout New York State.center_img “Like” Jacob Seus on Facebook and “Follow” him on Twitter. Volunteers consisted of Family Life Church Pastor, Joe Coudriet, and members of the churches lifeline outreach team. “These people have been pulled away from their families, their employment, their careers, their homes and for many, it is a great financial sacrifice,” said Coudriet. Coudriet said, as Christians the ultimate expression of their faith is giving to those who need it most. “Someone told me once that everything begins as a seed and grows into an experience, find your seed, get it into the ground and be a blessing to others.” For more coronavirus coverage, click here.last_img
