- First Time?
On July 28, 2018, Daybreak-ers joined dozens of volunteers at the Berean Bible Church in Pottstown for two hours to pack meals for children in need. The event is one of many such meal-packing events held across the country. The sponsoring organization is "Feed My Starving Children", fmsc.org
Victory Park has never looked better! On Saturday morning, a team from Daybreak joined forces with a few volunteers from Royersford Borough and got to work! The volunteers spread mulch, planted a few flowers, did some edging, and general clean-up. Daybreak provided some refreshments which were enjoyed by all the volunteers! Thanks to everyone who participated and helped to shine out Jesus’ light in this hands-on way!
This Christmas, Daybreak adopted a local family with 8 kids and helped to make their Christmas a little extra special. Our congregation responded with overflowing generosity as folks purchased
pillows, blankets, clothing, and various other wishlist items for the children. Our KidZone sang Christmas carols the week before Christmas and presented gift bags filled with pillows and
blankets. The mom emailed later and reflected her family’s appreciation: "We just wanted to say a huge thank you for coming and blessing our family on Sunday. The kids slept great with their new
pillows and blankets. Many of the kids were sleeping on old character pillows that were flat. After you guys left, the kids ran and put their stuff on their cots. Two of them asked to take a nap
to try them out. We have been staying with my aunt here since April after a very unexpected move, and the kids have really struggled with having things of their own. Now the blankets are theirs,
and the pillows. Thank you again so much.”
It was a very special time as the carols were sung, as all the kids introduced themselves and a blessing was prayed over the family before we left. The other gifts were secretly delivered to the mom later in the week. This family will enjoy opening these wonderful gifts on Christmas morning.
This is what Jesus had in mind when He taught us to, “…let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)
One small church in Royersford packs and sends 40 shoeboxes full of goodies to needy kids around the world this Christmas! That might seem kind of insignificant but catch this: this means that 40 children will also hear the Good News of Jesus shared with them by the good folks of Samaritan's Purse as part of Samaritan's Purse's Operation Christmas Child, transforming the lives of children and their families around the world!
