CINCINNATI — For the next few months, a local church is surprising some deserving members of the community with a financial gift to help out.
When the pandemic started, Light of the World Church went virtual, and instead of losing members, their congregation has grown. As the church's congregation grew, members were very generous with what they could give.
As the church grew, so did the church's financial support, so they decided that with the extra support they will be surprising deserving community members with $400 cash for the next few months. One of the people to receive the gift is former cheerleading coach Adoria Maxberry.
One of Maxberry's former cheerleaders nominated her for the gift because she is juggling being a mom and working. On top of that, Maxberry recently graduated with her master's degree from the University of Cincinnati's College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning, and Maxberry is always looking to help others.
"To see God working like that, and the church being a blessing to others, that made me just fill up," Shannon Carr, a member of Light of the World Church who presented Maxberry with the gift, said. "I was overjoyed today to see that someone else was blessed."
