Lending A Helping Hand

When an elderly neighbor and fellow member of Jacksonville's Grace Tabernacle Church needed a helping hand, church members pitched in and did the yard work during a surprise visit Monday evening, April 25. The service program is an extension of the church's outreach ministry, designed to help those who need it.
