The fund-raiser for the Lawrence County Faith House to be built at John 3:16 Ministries was held Saturday night at the Hoxie Service Center. The project will provide housing for Lawrence County residents who are in the program.

"The goal for the Lawrence County Faith House is $40,000, of which $31,745.56 was raised Saturday night," Cora Steele, one of the committee members, said. "The residents of John 3:16 Ministries would like to thank everyone who made the event such a success."

There were more than 400 guests who enjoyed an all-you-can-eat catfish and chicken dinner, a cake auction, door prizes and a live auction. The residents from John 3:16 cooked and served the meal.

Hoxie Mayor Donnie Roberts addressed the crowd about the work being carried out through the ministry, and thanked the ministry for their efforts in the cleanup of Lawrence County after the ice storm.

State Rep. J.R. Rogers also spoke on behalf of the ministry about what it means to the community to have a place where men can go to learn about Jesus Christ and receive help with their addictions.

Bryan Tuggle, director of John 3:16 Ministries, spoke to guests about how many families are touched by addiction problems, and how many families and communities benefit from one man going through the program.

Anyone who would like to support the Lawrence County Faith House or learn more about John 3:16 Ministries can contact Steele, Carolyn Fowler or any other Lawrence County Faith House Committee member.
