Snellville event to promote ministries

SNELLVILLE -- A local church is hosting a conference Saturday with a goal of building several ministries.

Pastor Leon Williams has planned the event for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at Snellville Church of God at 2720 Centerville Highway.

With a large playground for the kids and plans for free gifts and a fire truck, Williams encourages people to bring the entire family.

"One purpose is to build up awareness and support for ministries and organizations in the community," Williams said. "Also I am trying to open the opportunity with churches to get involved in helping others."

The participants include Be Encouraged Ministries, La Englesia De Dios, Snellville Biblical Deliverance Center, Life Chapel and Kingdom Dominion Church of God.

As part of the event, people can bring school supplies and food donations.
