Grill for God began the 2013 grilling season last Friday, March 8th with us feeding a group of college students volunteering their Spring Break with Habitat for Humanity of Iredell County. This is always an exciting opportunity for us to serve another organization in this community serving residents of Statesville. This grilling year is already looking to be very successful with several events scheduled between now and August 2013! Please visit our calendar to see upcoming events and find out how you can help serve.
We hosted our 2nd Annual G4G Ministries Golf Tournament on October 5, 2012. We were optimistic going into this major fundraiser with hopes that we would double the number of golfers and sponsors. We actually almost tripled the number of golfers this year with 18 teams and doubled sponsorships. We had golfers travel from as far away as Minnesota. The tournament began with lunch provided by Grill for God. At 1pm we prayed before sending the golfers out to start an afternoon of fun and fellowship. This year’s event was even better than last years and provided a great opportunity to spread the word about our ministry and what we do.
What an awesome year it has been for G4G. In January our goal was to grill chickens at 25 events this year. We are on track to provide Grill for God chicken plates at 27 events for the 2011 year. In December we are serving at a Toys for Tots drive on the 1st in Greensboro, and partnering with Samaritan’s Feet Ministries and C12 Group on the 3rd in Charlotte.
On December 3rd our partnership with Samaritan’s Feet will provide 250 pairs of shoes to individuals in Charlotte. Grill for God will provide grilled chicken plates and hotdogs and hamburgers to people who show up that day. Samaritan’s Feet International, Grill For God, and C12 Group will use this opportunity to share God’s love with the least, the lost, and the last.
On June 11th the Grill for God team served the residents and neighbors of Fifth Street Ministries located in Statesville, NC. What a blessing for our volunteers to be able to give back to our community. We cooked 36 chickens and made 144 plates. The guests enjoyed the food and the volunteers enjoyed interacting with the people being served.
