Area churches gathered Sunday to put their faith into action by pouring out and packaging some 30,000 meals as part of a global feeding ministry. “This is what Jesus would do,” said the Rev. Rob Bruce, pastor at McEver Road United Methodist Church in West Hall. “If the church is the kingdom of God on Earth and, in the kingdom of God, there is no more crying, no more hunger and no more war ... then this is what we need to be doing,” he said.
