Bowlin honored as Hometown Hero

On October 24, 2019, the Kannapolis American Heritage Girls (AHG), Troop #NC2217 honored Micheal Bowlin, volunteer at Big Elm Ministries, with the Modern Woodman Home Town Hero Award. This award recognizes those unsung heroes that dedicate himself or herself to serving others. Each year the girls choose a local individual that exemplifies service to others and this year they chose Micheal for his work with the ministry.

Micheal has been a volunteer for two years at Big Elm Ministries, a community outreach facility of Kannapolis Church of God, and in that time has become the coordinator of the Backpacks of Blessings program at the ministry. This program helps to provide weekly, healthy, nutritious weekend meals, snacks and beverages to local children in need through our school system.

Micheal is dedicated to this service, takes great pride in his work and enjoys making sure that each week we deliver 75 backpacks to the specified school. Through his efforts, new volunteers have been added to the program allowing the opportunity to expand the number of backpacks prepared in the coming months thus meeting more needs in our community. Big Elm Ministries is honored to have him part of the team and is so appreciative of his time and commitment to this avenue of the ministry. Micheal truly makes a difference!

Mattie Sorrow, Director of Troop #NC2217 of the American Heritage Girls states that the mission of AHG is to build women of integrity through service to God, family, community and country.

AHG was founded by a group of parents wanting a faith-based, scout-type character development program for their daughters in 1995. AHG girls across the nation and the globe participate in badge programs, service projects, leadership opportunities and outdoor experiences, all with an emphasis on Christian values and family involvement.
