ALBANY, GA (WALB) – An Albany church plans to ring in the new year while feeding the hungry. New Birth Fellowship members will celebrate the New Year by praising God and giving thanks for what they have.

They'll also serve those who are hungry during a midnight meal, and plan to give out boxes of food and drinks Thursday night and on Sunday.

Pastor L.B. Gardner says Christians are called to serve.  He said, "It says that if a brother or sister comes to you naked and destitute of daily food, then why are you saying to them, 'go in peace.' No, no, no. You minister to the need first and then you tell them what God will do, so our concern is more so ministering to the need."

Pastor Gardner says this Sunday, the first of the new year, services will be held a little differently. He says members should come dressed to work passing out food and ministering to the less fortunate.
