An Albany church is bringing the community together by providing gifts of love. Hundreds of people from the community attended the Ebenezer Christian Center's "Gifts of Love" event.

Attendees had praise and worship and were provided with lunch. They were also given food and clothing baskets and even played bingo. Church organizers say it's important to give back to the community.    

"This is a way to get to be known in our community. Amen. A church is as strong as her community. So this gives us a chance to get ourselves introduced to the community," said Lucille Smith.  

"Gifts of Love" is held every fifth Saturday. It will be held again March 29th, 2014. They will have a Valentine's Day Ball February 15th for seniors 65 and over at 2:00 p.m.
