Like a Star shining bright in the darkness, Matthew 5:16 tells us to let our light shine before others so they may see our good deeds and glorify the Lord.
In a world longing for encouragement, Star 99.1 & Fellowship Home Loans want to shine a spotlight on individuals and groups impacting their community. Big or small, acts of kindness make a difference, and can change someone's day, week, or maybe even their life!
Whether it's an individual or a youth group, small group, drama club, boy/girl scout troop, sports team, or another circle of friends - we want to hear about it!
Who's shining a light in your community?
