The Witness Ministry Team of First Christian Church recently made a $1,000 donation to ADFAC (Aid To Distressed Families of Appalachian Counties Inc.), a press release said. Barbara Wilson, Witness Ministry Team chairperson noted in the presentation that this donation is in memory of Judy Jenkins and in honor of Elizabeth Herbes, long time ADFAC staff member.
Before Jenkins died, she gave a generous donation to the Witness Ministry Team at First Christian Church, giving them authority to distribute her gift as part of their outreach ministry in the community, the press release said.
