Saturday morning under a beautiful blue sky, members of the Ministerial Alliance and several congregations, representatives from the Big Sandy City Council, Big Sandy Area Lions Club, Rotary Club, and Chamber of Commerce met to officially open the new facility for the Big Sandy Agape House. New Beginnings Christian Fellowship pastor and president of the Ministerial Alliance, Jerome Ellard, offered a blessing on the new location that was home to First Christian Church for many years.

The Agape House is currently holding a food and toy drive and is also accepting gently-worn or new coats for kids and adults. The drive continues daily – 8am thru 5:30pm – until December 14th.
