INDIAN RIVER COUNTY - The King's men from King's Baptist Church visited The Source, a homeless assistance center for the homeless and at risk on Aug. 6 and donated their construction talents to a greatly needed renovation project, rebuilding the entrance handicap ramp and refurbishing the dilapidated front steps.
Three volunteers from the group: Kenny Chesnut, Chad Alsin and Jamie Ross contributed more than $3,000 worth of materials and several hours of hard work to the task of rebuilding the stairs and improving the wheelchair ramp front entrance to The Source.
"Our desire is to help people. The Bible says to go out and help the orphans, widows, elderly, and poor. We do just that," said Mr. Ross.
The gentlemen who arrived to work at The Source call themselves the
King's men, because as members of King's Baptist Church, they formed a group devoted to helping the elderly, the homeless, the unfortunate and the destitute of Indian River County.
Part of the covenant of King's Baptist Church is "to watch over one another in brotherly love" and the King's men team truly exemplifies this Christian spirit.
Projects such as the work contributed by the King's men, help meet critical needs without depleting operating funds.
The Source is deeply grateful for the support of King's Baptist Church.
