Statesboro's Southbridge Community Church spent time last Sunday after the morning worship service to be the hands and feet of Jesus when they walked into the BI-LO grocery store and purchased food items for the Statesboro Food Bank using gift cards provided by the church. What began as an announcement of an upcoming "surprise" about a month ago culminated on Palm Sunday when each person attending the service was handed a blue shopping bag containing a $5 BI-LO gift card and told to go to the store as a congregation and begin shopping. A suggested list of Food Bank items was included in the bag.
