‘She didn’t have any work experience, but her smile… She was just willing to learn. I said, “I’m going to make sure you get hired.” She’s been there ever since,’ said Lewis.

Dallas church hands out gift cards to church members now furloughed during shutdown

Published

on

DALLAS, Texas — The Concord Church in Dallas extended a helping hand to about 100 church members Sunday who are also federal employees and not working as the government remains shut down for the 23rd day. 

The government was officially shut down on December 22, 2018. 

The reason why is centered on President Donald Trump’s campaign promise to build a wall along the Mexico border.

Trump wanted more than $5 billion to start construction of the wall, but he, Republican leadership, and Democrats can’t come to an agreement about those funds. 

Tough decisions are now staring thousands of families living paycheck to paycheck in the face. 

Over 800,000 employees have either been furloughed or must continue working without pay. 

A majority of employees received a final paycheck last Friday, but for most, it was only half of what they normally get paid. 

Senior Pastor Bryan Carter knows that. During a service this morning, he asked anyone in the church who is a federal employee or a family member of a federal employee to stand up. 

After that, he invited all those standing to the altar to be prayed over.
