Rev. Kenyatta Smith, pastor of the Another Chance Church, 1641 W. 79th St, Tuesday launched his â€œMonth of Blessingsâ€ program vowing to pay somebodyâ€™s bill and once a month giving away a car to some needy person living in Chicago.
â€œWe are paying somebodyâ€™s bill every month and at the end of the month, we are giving away a car. We are six-years in ministry,â€ said Smith who has been in the ministry for the past 15-years.
â€œStarting June 14th, we will be paying somebodyâ€™s bill and every fourth Sunday we are giving away a pre-owned car,â€ Smith told this reporter.
â€œI want to show people that the church can still thrive in the community and be a blessing, to let them know there is help out here and that they do not have to be alone.â€
Quoting Romans 15:1-2 from the Message Bible, Pastor Smith said, â€œ1-2Those of us who are strong and able in the faith need to step in and lend a hand to those who falter, and not just do what is most convenient for us. Strength is for service, not status. Each one of us needs to look after the good of the people around us, asking ourselves, â€œHow can I help?â€
When asked how would he pay for these gifts, Smith said through his church tithes.
