GEORGETOWN, S.C. (WCBD) – Georgetown was one of the hardest hit areas in the Lowcountry during Florence, but a local church did not let that stop them from giving back to the community.
A scoop of love, a sprinkle of joy, and whole lot of giving is the message pastor Richard Frasier says is behind free food Thursdays at Love Chapel Deliverance Church in Georgetown.
“You may not have nothing to offer, but we’ll take what you have and that’s you,” Frasier said.
Love Chapel prepares meals for the Georgetown community every third Thursday of the month from 5: 30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the front steps of the church.
“Not a frozen meal, but a hot one,” Frasier said.
Each hot meal perpetuates something greater.
“A lot of people in the community feel that the church is not contributing to the community outside of coming inside the sacred walls of the church,” he said.
Love Chapel is hoping to change that.
“We are the community,” Frasier emphasized.
During Hurricane Florence, the church opened it’s doors for people seeking shelter. With the threat of river flooding around the corner, Pastor Frasier says the church isn’t going anywhere.
“We weather the storm with them, if there’s a need we will be here,” he said.
Frasier believes no one in the community should go hungry as many churches provide free meals throughout the week. Love Chapel says they will continue to serve the Georgetown Community one person at a time.
