Holy Grill Feeds Christmas Dinner To Skid Row Homeless

Christmas is a special time for remembering the birth of Jesus and for bringing family and friends together. During this time of economic crisis many people can barely make ends meet and the need for assistance is great. This Christmas Cypress Church joined together with *Faith in Christ* Ministries to serve a holiday meal to more than 1,000 area residents.

Early in the morning on Christmas Day, a group of about 50 volunteers from the *Knights of the Holy Grill* and Cypress Church headed for Los Angeles. The volunteers partnered with Pastor Joe Browne of *Faith in Christ*Ministries in South Central Los Angeles to provide meals for many needy and disadvantaged people. Dave Austin from the Cypress Church *Knights of the Holy Grill* has a great desire to serve people in need. When asked about the event, he responded: *This is our Christmas present to Jesus.*

Volunteers of all ages prepared turkey, ham, pork roast, vegetables, beverages, rolls and dessert. After their stop at *Faith in Christ* Ministries, the Cypress Church team went to three different locations in the *Skid Row* area of Los Angeles. Hundreds of homeless were fed in the downtown Los Angeles area.

Cypress Church cooperates with many other churches, ministries and missionary organizations to serve the needs of the local community in northern Orange County as well as in Los Angeles, New Orleans and other locations around the world. There are many opportunities for the public to become involved in serving others.

The church campus is located at 6143 Ball Road just east of Valley View. Information about volunteer opportunities is available at (714) 952-3001.
