Leeds church hosts soup kitchen, clothes giveaway

By Ashley Nix

LEEDS (WBRC) - The Tower of Prayer Church in Leeds hosted a soup kitchen and clothes giveaway Wednesday.

It was an opportunity on a cold, winter day to stay warm and give clothes to the less fortunate.  Pastor Shaemun Webster says the new mission of his church is a word that's not even a word: "Servalution".

Webster says church members are being encouraged to take the ministry outside the four walls of the church building and help people who need it in the community. 

This was the first year for the event. Organizers are hoping to get the word out earlier next year to have more people coming to gather what they need.
