It is a wonderful blessing to witness when people who used to be strangers come together and bond through the sharing of food, games, and stories. Living in the downtown city of Savannah, GA I pass countless strangers everyday, never truly knowing who they are. This past October was different and an unique opportunity for the congregation at my church.
Attending Bull Street Baptist Church since my freshman year, the community I have personally found there is like no other. It is a community full of believers who deeply care for each other, in times of celebration and need. Through the college ministry of Bull Street, known as The Porch, I have created deep friendships that will last beyond college. All of the college students together, create a large population in our church's congregation. Typically, every Halloween we celebrate by having a dance party with the craziest costumes designed by SCAD students. This year together we decided we wanted to do something different to truly serve the surrounding neighborhoods of Savannah.
Our entire church of all ages rallied together to create this event a reality. Consisting of multiple months there was constant preparation from all members of our church were doing everything to make this event the best it could be.
The day we had all anxiously anticipated, it all came together...
Everyone was eager to serve at their station from running a game, serving food, and sharing fun in laughter and conversations. I was so honored for Bull Street to ask me to serve as their photographer for the event. Being able to run around during the event capturing smiles from winning candy, face painting, and hard core apple bobbing was such a joy to witness.
The community and connections that the Lord provided through this event have been an incredible answer to prayer. Taking the time as a church body to authentically spend time getting to know others, has been such an encouragement.
Through sharing simple activities of Fall Fest fun it has been the perfect opportunity to share the love of Christ with others.
A few of the many photographs I was able to capture during the event. We had so many talented face painters' and excited volunteers to make this event a huge success!
