Operation Intercession began in January of 2017, when Faith Baptist Church and Fairview Baptist Church of West End both felt the call to reach out to the local community. They began delivering meals to those who are less fortunate, elderly unable to leave their homes, or those just in need of some support and a hot meal.
Kasey Kelly, Executive Director of Operation Intercession shared, “With such a growing community here in Moore County, we are seeing a larger need for this kind of serving throughout the local community. We are so thankful for the members of our community that have the ability to donate their time and care for those around them.”
On a monthly basis, more than 475 meals are delivered around Moore County from the non-profit organization.
Every month 18 teams of 2-3 people, they cook, package, and deliver the meals to those who may find themselves in need of encouragement or assistance on a monthly basis.
On the third Saturday of the month, the organization meets at Fairview Baptist Church to cook and prepare the food. They are always accepting donations of all kinds to be able to better serve those in the need of their community.
This organization has a heart for the disabled veterans, homeless children, and homeless adults of the community. With vast numbers of those without homes within our community, Operation Intercession wants to reach out to them.
They want to encourage anyone in the community that is in need of assistance or of a hot meal to contact Operation Intercession and they will be connected with the team to be added to the list of recipients.
Operation Intercession often works with many local churches to connect and expand their reach across the local community to meet the needs of those around them.
Churches are also welcome to to send volunteers to participate in Operation Intercession. The churches are happy to include anyone who may want to join and has the desire to assist their organization in any way they feel led to give to those in need.
Operation Intercession makes it a goal to ensure that their recipients are comfortable with the individuals who are on the teams.
The recipients also receive encouragement on a spiritual and personal level with the specific team that is designated to visit the same delivery location each month. This ensures those receiving the meals always are greeted by a familiar face and develop a foundational relationship.
“We are very thankful when the recipients become familiar with their delivery team and begin to build a relationship and experience a sense of community through this sharing,” Kelly stated.
Operation Intercession welcomes all donations and volunteers looking to get involved and have an influence in the lives of those in need. They are happy that they are looking to grow and expand this ministry to bless more people throughout Moore County in the coming future.
“There are many ways to get in contact with us. We are excited to have new people join our delivery and prep teams,” said Kelly.
