As many of you know, we have the honor of partnering with Lubbock Unified Church by sharing a building. While Lubbock Impact is providing resources like the Food & Hygiene Pantry, Clothes Closet, Community Meal, Clinics, and more, Lubbock Unified Church is gathering for Bible studies throughout the week and church on Sunday mornings.
Often, we get to share stories with Pastor Fermin of Lubbock Unified Church about people finding resources at Lubbock Impact and then learning about the hope of Christ because they stayed for Wednesday worship or went to church on Sunday.
Pastor Fermin is in the building during the week praying and ministering to participants that are here for resources and programming. He is never too busy to stop and minister to anyone walking into Lubbock Impact.
A few weeks ago, Lubbock Unified Church baptized seventeen people at a community pool in Lubbock! Even one of the lifeguards on duty asked to be baptized because she had made a profession of faith earlier in the summer.
It is such a blessing to be able to serve the community alongside Lubbock Unified Church. We are constantly encouraged by the people coming to know God by the work that is being done. Hebrews 10:24 says, “and let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works,” which is a great example of this partnership. A constant encouragement back and forth of how we can love others well.
