Recently, Pastor John Wagner has been commended for his community service projects. He has been doing little things to help out around Lubbock, such as handing out free bottles of water on a hot day, and even giving people quarters at a local Laundromat so people can do their laundry for free.
These local projects have helped almost 10,000 in the Lubbock community. The Pastor’s goal is to put a smile on people’s faces.
Although such projects help to make Lubbock a better place, Pastor John Wagner‘s help isn’t just local. He and his congregation have also reached out to help victims of Hurricane Sandy.
The Turning Point Community Church is also working to help developing countries get clean drinking water, through their nonprofit organization, Charity Water. One project of this organization takes place in a small, remote village in India, where they are building a well that will enable the village of 250 to have clean water for the first time.
