After much preparation, the Breath of Life Church held the opening of its Community Thrift Store on Sunday, November 26th, on Marshall Road. The Community Services department of the church was inspired to give back to their community while creating funding for the department and was reminded of the vision that the former Community Services Director Pastor Craig Williams had for the various churches.

Sharon Robinson, church member added, “This lit a torch in the hands and mind of the donor that never died, and so like Abraham heard the voice of God spoke, gave him the instructions and he went forth without …questioning God.” 

Pastor Williams shared in the excitement with the church and encouraged the members to continue the expand the ministry. Also present at the ceremony were South Bahamas Conference administrators, President Pastor Kenny Deveaux, and Executive Secretary Pastor Leonardo Rahming. 

In his charge, Pastor Deveaux commended the Breath of Life members for looking for more ways to assist the surrounding community. 

Deveaux said, "Our church is a church that God has designed to assist the community when we leave those doors and go out into the community, then we are doing the work that God wants us to do." 

By helping others, Deveaux explained, the church is adhering to the great commission found in Matthew 28. 

He continued, "So when I see what we are celebrating today, I think it is an epitome of what God wants us as churches to be all about." 

The service continued with the ribbon cutting and a walk through the store. The Breath of Life church community services department also expressed gratitude to its sponsors. If you would like to donate and support the church in this venture, feel free to call 806-1227.
