It is the mandate of the church to go into the world and preach the gospel.
The greatest of this gospel is that of love. It is a core responsibility of the Christian to show love to all irrespective of religious and cultural backgrounds.
House on the Rock has taken this mandate seriously as displayed over the years through its outreach program, Project Spread. Project Spread is a love laced program aimed at making the Christmas season a memorable one for families around Lagos State. This is done by donating food items, clothes, medical supplies and more to families in selected local government areas so they have a reason to celebrate joyfully during the Yuletide season.
Last year, over 2,400 families across 4 different local government areas were beneficiaries of the Project Spread outreach. The Christmas-themed giveaway had families receiving food items and free medical supplies. It was done simultaneously at Makoko, Ijesha, Lagos Island (Isale Eko) and Jakande communities across Lagos state. This year, Project Spread is scheduled to visit Lagos Island, Sangotedo, Ajegunle and Elegushi communities, on the 17th of December 2016.
The Senior Pastor, House on the Rock church, Pastor Paul Adefarasin, will be present at some of the locations to present the gifts to the families gathered and share uplifting words as is his usual style. Free health consultation and supplies will also be distributed.
Lagos State can be better when the church plays its part. With Project Spread, the church is delivering on its commitment to putting smiles on thousands of faces this Christmas and in turn, making Lagos State a better state, one family at a time.
