The Gathering at Williamson Automotive

Jul 28, 2009  |     |   General

Friday evening, July 24th, was a great evening of great food, family fun, Christian worship and fellowship at A Plus Williamson automotive. Activities included ATV and Hayrack rides, Live Music, Dancing and Martial arts demonstrations, and water balloons.

Karen Williamson and her son, Jesse are great partners of Open Door Mission, and have sectioned off a notable portion of their square footage to provide a space to collect donations, anytime they are open for business. They also host a Stuff A Truck on the third Saturday of each month. This saves the donors the time and expense of traveling to Open Door Mission’s campus to drop off much needed items.

Live worship music was also provided during the Gathering. Dan Applegate, the Community Services Director for Open Door Mission, came out to thank the Williamson’s, and all in attendance for their generosity towards Open Door Mission. He discussed the ongoing needs at the Timberlake Outreach Center for Beds, Washers and Dryers, Diapers, and all sorts of household goods and gently used clothing. Open Door Mission sends a truck to Williamson Automotive twice weekly to pick up the items that have been dropped off by faithful supporters in the West Omaha community.

A special thank you to Karen and Jesse Williamson for going out of their way to organize this event that created many fond memories of inspired Christian fellowship for people from multiple churches in the area.
