Turning Point Community Church shares the blessing of free ice cream


If you were out shopping in southwest Lubbock Saturday you may have noticed a group of folks wearing neon green t-shirts and handing out free ice cream.

Members of Turning Point Community Church handed out free ice cream to shoppers at the Walmart at Milwaukee and 82nd.

There was no catch - the ice cream really was free.

Pastor John Wagner says his church family simply wanted to bless people, for no other reason, than to bless them.

Wagner said, "I think it's important for all of us to be generous and to show how much we love our community, how much we love our city. The Lord said that there is potent spiritual significance in even just giving a cup of cold water to somebody. So, we're giving cold ice cream today and I think it's important to refresh our city."

This outreach effort was appropriately titled - Refresh.

Pastor Wagner says the church plans to do more outreach efforts like this over the coming months.
