Shine the Light 2018 at Festival Park


At this year’s 2nd Annual Shine the Light event in downtown Washington, NC, Reach Recovery had the opportunity to be a resource vendor. The event was even promoted by WITN. Recovery resources were provided by a number of other organizations including Celebrate Recovery, Craven County’s H.O.P.E., New Life Ministries and others.

We encountered many who had just come from a local detox facility and others who were there to be filled by the Spirit of God. Free food and music were among the attractions that drew people in.

Matthew 25:35 is clear about feeding those in need. If there’s nothing else to bring us together, we can all identify with the need to be fed. BBQ sandwhich, hotdogs, drinks and chips were distributed and this gave us the opportunity to share our ministry with adults in and looking for recovery as well as family members looking for encouragement and support.

Although it was a long, hot day (better than cold and rainy), we were able to hand out plenty of resources with our contact info on them. We hope and pray that those who are serious about getting help will do so.

Thank you for standing and praying with us!
