In an effort to pray together for community leaders and emergency personnel, the public is invited to stop by B&C Store ‘N’ Deli on Parks Avenue, and have a free breakfast sandwich on Saturday, October 3, beginning at 7 a.m.
The concept of the event is very simple, and the whole thing was God’s idea, according to owners, Brandon and Christy Gamble.
The Gambles opened the store, located at 403 Parks Avenue, in Scottsboro, in the old Bass Quick Stop building, in May of this year. Brandon is a minister at Brownsboro Baptist Church in Madison County, and Christy is a registered nurse at Huntsville Hospital.
“Our store will not be open that day, so we aren’t selling anything,” Brandon said. “We are just giving away sausage or bacon biscuits to anyone who wants to stop in and pray or give us a prayer request. It’s a way to come together to pray for our community, our police officers, emergency personnel and city leaders.
“We get a lot of ministers and deacons who come in every day to eat,” Brandon said, “and I feel like this community breakfast is something the Lord is leading us to do.”
“We are hoping for at least 300 people to attend,” he said. “Breakfast will be available until we run out.”
The Gambles see their store as an extension of their faith in Christ.
“We try to be reflective of our faith in everything we do,” he said. “We want everyone to know that Jesus loves them and we love them.
“Come as you are,” he said. “This is a totally informal event, and it’s non-denominational. Everyone is welcome. If you can’t stay to pray with us, at least stop in and get a biscuit and say ‘hi.’ We’d love to see you there.”
