Operation Inasmuch; United Project Day

Last Saturday, September 18, the annual project day for Operation Inasmuch United, had more than 90 volunteers from churches, United Way and Celebrate Recovery finished up 21 jobs. Teams went to Hancock County and Perry County to complete such jobs as cleaning gutters & yards, building ramps, repairing ramps & decks, coating mobile home roofs, and painting houses for elderly, disabled and others in need in those communities.
Approximately $8,000 was spent on all of those projects. The money was donated by: Central Baptist Church, Christian Church, Branchville Methodist Church, Union Baptist Church, Celebrate Recovery, Hancock Repair Affair, United Way, and individuals.
All of the churches come together to do these projects year round. The organizers are: Wayne East, Director of Inasmuch United; Larry Bunner, Co-Director; Brenda East, Treasurer & Administrator; and Mary Bunner, Organizational Tasks.
Pastor Brian Adkins, of Central Baptist Church, would like to thank all of the volunteers and those who donated. A special thank you goes out to Allen Kennedy, Chairman of Hancock Repair Affair and Doug Everheart, Vice President of United Way.
“We do this to minister to people in our community,” Pastor Adkins said. “The heart of Operation Inasmuch, is to show the community that the church does care and wants to have an impact, for the Kingdom of God and for the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.”
The theme of Operation Inasmuch comes from Matthew 25:40, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
They have built seven ramps for people in need already this year. Last year, even with covid, they were able to complete 9 ramps. This is an ongoing, year-round project.
