Life Church feeds a community

Posted: Updated:

WEST MONROE (KNOE 8 News) - Before the storm hit, it was a feast for the community in Ouachita Parish.

For several years, Life Church of West Monroe has held their annual block party, this year at the Boys and Girls Club in West Monroe.

Enough fish for more than 300 people was fried and Santa was handing out gifts a little early

Senior Pastor Joel Dyke says this is the church's way of showing the meaning of Christmas.

"We really believe what Christmas is all about giving. Of course, the greatest gift we ever got was the Son of God," Dyke said.   

The yearly event is free to the public. And anyone is invited. The church sponsors the meal and the toys are donated from members of the church and various individuals.
