9th annual L.O.L. Meridian mission event kicked off Monday
MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) -The 9th annual Love Out Loud Meridian (L.O.L. Meridian) mission event began Monday.
Despite the pandemic, Northcrest Baptist Church and volunteers from numerous other churches across the area are showing they care by performing mission work right here at home, such as free car washes, clean-up efforts around the city and drive thru prayer.
Most mission activities are outdoors and precautions, such as social distancing, are in place.
Northcrest Executive Pastor Wade Phillips says it’s a way for the church and the community to show love to Meridian and spread a positive message.
“Our church takes mission trips all over the world, but this is a week we can do it right here in the city of Meridian. And show the love of God, be the hands and feet of Jesus, right here in our city,” said Phillips.
Love Out Loud continues through Friday.
You may sign up for daily community service acts taking place across the city on the L.O.L Meridian website.
