BARNET- The town of Barnet Presbyterian church hosted their annual Super Bowl lunch on Sunday, but the focus was on a bigger issue then just the game. The church dedicated its efforts to helping Syrian refugees, in addition to having a potluck of soup and accepting cash donations.
Reverand of the church, Howard Gaston, said "we have to remember different needs going on, particularly with the Syrian refugees and the issues that go along with that." The event is a fellowship and a fun way of getting together to expose the issues and to educate people about them.
The church advertised for everyone to take part by reaching out to more than just the congregation that attends on a weekly basis. "Part of it to expose all of us to what's going on and the plate they're dealing with" says Gaston.
The event had a turn out of 20 people, who all gathered to send a helping hand to those in need.
