Thank you to our WayMakers!  Your support transforms lives!

We celebrated the commitment of WayMakers at First Fruit Ministries with our recent Campus Crawl Dinner and Open House. WayMakers dedicate their time, talents, and treasures to serve those experiencing hunger, homelessness, or human trafficking.

In addition to a delicious meal from Irv's Signature Catering featuring barbecue with all the fixin's in our community hall, participants received a behind-the-scenes look at the following areas on our ministry campus:

- Food Pantry and Outreach Center for Our Homeless Neighbors

- Gray House: a newly renovated home for Urban Missionaries who serve with us for one year

- The Guest House: A Crisis Response Emergency Shelter for victims of sexual assault or human trafficking

For a tour or more information about any of our programs, email anewber@firstfruitministries.org
