Hundreds of homeless people were bussed to New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Stonecrest today for worship service and a Super Bowl celebration. The church provided meals, haircuts, hairstyles and other resources to help those who are disadvantaged.
Dr. Jamal Harrison Bryant, the mega church’s new leader, said the “Soup and Souls” event is part of a larger initiative New Birth launched during Super Bowl 53 weekend to combat homelessness. Today’s event also includes entertainment.
On Saturday, the church gave out bags of canned soup to those in need.
