HOLT— Holt Assembly of God Pastor Jay Tyler and church members invite area residents to a neighborhood cookout next Saturday.

Residents can eat fried fish, coleslaw, grits, french fries and hushpuppies while socializing with church members, Tyler said.  

"We are trying to get the church reacquainted with the community," he said.

Church members recently collected non-perishable food items and donated them to First Baptist Church of Holt's food pantry. Assembly of God members also volunteered during the church Harvest Festival on Halloween.

The neighborhood cookout will be the first of several community activities the church will offer in the near future, Tyler said. "We want to do something (community) outreach-related at least once a quarter," he said.

For now, Tyler wants residents to bring their appetites.

"We want this to be a blessing to the community," he said. "We will be serving food until we run out."
