Local churches are helping fill the gap of meeting the needs of the homeless and the needy in their community. The Anniston Soup Bowl closes the week of July fourth, so local churches have stepped in to make sure that the hungry are fed. Today, members of Iron City Baptist Church gave out food at Zinn Park. Pastor Aaron Hall says today’s mission is motivated by a God-given responsibility to meet the everyday basics of their neighbors. Life Church of Oxford, Greenbrier Road Baptist Church, and Golden Springs Baptist Church also participated in this week’s food giveaway.
