Bessemer, Alabama is not a great place to raise a child.Â Not only hasÂ Bessemer been named in the Top 10 of the most dangerous places to live, but this past year, the local school system was deemed to be in the 80% poverty level.
Grace Church Bessemer is just 19-months-old but is already making a huge impact in their city.Â Last year on the Sunday before Thanksgiving, food boxes containing the traditional Thanksgiving meal were given to more than 600 families.Â Pastor Mickey saw the greatÂ importance of this distribution, so he is doing it again with the hopes of reaching even more who are in need.
In addition to the holiday food boxes, Grace Church Bessemer gives out hundreds of food boxes every month and partnersÂ with the Bessemer City School system to feed their students during the summer months.
To cover the cost of the food boxes, Mickey has called on his friends to come in and help. Gold City, The Kingsmen and New Ground will be doing a concert on Friday, July 17th with 100% of the ticket prices going to provide for the families of Bessemer.
If you would like to purchase your tickets you can do so by going to the events page ofÂ www.GraceChurchBessemer.com or by calling 800-965-9324. IfÂ you are unable to attend but would love to be a part of this vision, please make a donation on the church website and that money will be used to help Feed Bessemer.
