How a Dress Changes a Life

This past Saturday afternoon, Campbellsville Christian Church partnered with The Granted Grace Foundation to offer Prom Dresses free-of-charge to well deserving girls from across the region. 

Girls were paired with a personal shopper, selected a dress and shoes, and members of the Prayer Ministry team offered to pray with the girls. Here is what TGGF Founder, Melissa Marshbanks had to say:
The volunteers literally laughed, cried, and PRAYED with the ladies. For some of the girls, it was their first time praying or first time praying with their family. It was such a privilege to watch these girls get attached to the volunteers (and vice versa).
Sometimes something as simple as a dress and a prayer can change the course of a person's life. I want to say thank you to all who donated dresses, served at the event, and prayed for the event. Moreover, I want to let this serve as a reminder that there is nothing too small or too large that God cannot use to share the Good News of Jesus Christ and the hope that He brings to this life and the life to come. If we walked each and every day with this mindset, imagine what God could do in our community and the world!
