WICHITA FALLS, TX (TNN) -The Cowboy Church’s S.I.C.K Ministries held its first car show fundraiser Saturday.
S.I.C.K also known as Soldiers In Christ’s Kingdom is a ministry through Texoma Cowboy Church. The three-year-old ministry’s goal is to help people get their lives back on track.
“Today is a fundraising car show to bring awareness to the ministry, to help us do outreach in the community and get people the help they need,” Phillip Whitten said.
The faith-based ministries aim is to help anyone that needs help and beating addictions. They want to help lead people in the right direction with their non-traditional and informal meetings and group.
“We don’t charge anything for it. We go over the 12 steps of life recovery and give them wisdom and knowledge to get their lives straightened back out.”
Continuing with their non-traditional methods one of the groups' leaders Phillip Whitten combined his love of cars with their fundraiser efforts.
“Me being a car guy I figured we could reach a different crowd this way, then we would be able in regular outreach," Whitten said. "Last year we tried it last September we tried to do this, and we got rained out. The chances of rain went out pretty quick. Just to reach people we wouldn’t normally reach.”
S.I.C.K ministries has some other programs available such as a food pantry, jail ministries, and they provide personal items.
The group meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays nights. All meetings are open to the public and free of charge.
