SOD ministry New Greenhouse

“Serving Others Daily”

Serving Others Daily, or “S.O.D.,” is a mission outreach inspired in the heart of FBC church member Bill Halstead in 2010.

The purpose of S.O.D. is the spread God’s love through positive actions in hope that non-believers will come to salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.

The program teaches troubled young adults and Christian youth how to be productive through the guidance of mature Christian adult mentors, and it helps feed the physically hungry.

Through S.O.D., Christian adult mentors teach young adults how to grow a garden. This is not intended to be at the local church, but can include all church groups that spread the Good News that Jesus Christ died to pay the sin debt for all mankind, arose from the grave defeating death, and ascended into Heaven with God the Father.

Mature Christian believers are invited to join Bill in this mission project. Vegetables from this garden are donated to local food pantries (Christian Community Cupboard in Hurricane, Christ Kitchen in St. Albans, and Huntington Food Bank) to help feed needy families and individuals.

In 2010, approximately $4000 worth of produce was raised in Putnam County and donated, and several young men (many on parole), were able to learn to garden while interacting with Christian mentors.

As of 03-17-2012, a donation of a plot of land (half acre to an acre) for this mission project had not yet been secured. If you would like to donate land for this project, please contact Bill Halstead at 304-417-3458.
