Free barbecue promotes Arlington community service

Individuals and community service organizations can still register to attend the second annual Men, God, and BBQ event at the Levitt Pavilion on Tuesdays from 6-8 p.m.

Established in 2018, Men Serving God promotes community service opportunities. More than 450 men and nearly 20 Tarrant County nonprofit organizations will have information booths, but more attendees are welcome. Registration is free but required.

Arlington Life Shelter, CASA of Tarrant County, River Legacy Foundation and the Salvation Army are among the agencies that should have information kiosks.

Speakers for the event are Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship Church Pastor Tony Evans, a nationally recognized speaker, author and broadcaster, and State Representative David Cook.

“You don’t need to have endless free time or a special experience to make a difference in our community, just a servant’s heart and a willingness to help,” said Jerry McCullough, Founder of Men Serving God. . “The barbecue is a pressure-free opportunity to find out more about your place as a volunteer, whether it’s tomorrow or next year.”

The Arlington-based agency encourages all men to attend, but especially those nearing retirement.

“We are particularly interested in encouraging new and future retirees, who now have more time to volunteer to enable us to help them find ways to use their skills and talents to serve those in need” , McCullough said.
