"The Son of man did not come to be served, but to serve and give his life as ransom for many."
The Greek word that is translated "serve" in the bible verse literally means to wait on tables and "ransom" means to liberate many from misery.
RUN for RANSOM
5K & Fun Run
February 28, 2015
Battleship Park @ 8 a.m.
Ransom Ministries is hosting a 5K and Fun Run along Mobile Bay with the USS Alabama Battleship and the Mobile skyline in sight. The out-and-back 5K course starts at 8 a.m. and begins and ends at the Battleship, and participants will run along the Causeway. After the race, participants and their families are invited to stay for an awards ceremony and a post-race party. The theme for the Feb. 28 race is Salt Light, which represents Ransom Ministries' mission: Be Salt, Be Light, Be Jesus. Participants will receive a long-sleeved T-shirt with the Salt Light logo on the front. Proceeds from the race will fund several of Ransom Ministries' projects, including Ransom Cafe, a donation-only restaurant with six locations in churches
across Mobile and Baldwin counties; the Clean Machine, a portable laundry and shower
trailer; community gardens; and summer youth service camps. For information about
