Lee County church feeds chili to the community

LEESBURG, GA (WALB) -

Volunteers at a Lee County church served up a warm meal Saturday.

Members of First Baptist Church of Leesburg served warm chili and crackers to anyone who wanted to stop by. More than 250 people were fed at the community event. Organizers say they were pleasantly surprised by the turnout.

"The title we wanted was not just about coming to eat a meal it's about neighbors getting together  and being neighbors and brothers and sisters together and being able to see people sitting around and fellowship around the table," said JD McDaniel.

"I think that if everybody understands that we should have on vision and churches shouldn't be separated by the name on the sign or the front door," said Pastor Jamie Baggett, True Life Church of God.

The church also handed out more than 100 bags of non perishable food to those in need.
