Several Titus 2 ladies and manager Cathy Byrd went to The Pour Thursday to deliver a couple of large rugs and a side table to this Christian coffee shop at The ARK, a partner ministry of Titus 2 that is owned and operated by the Marianna-Panama City District of The United Methodist Church. The summer ministry there to international students who work at Panama City Beach and to Christian college students is busy this time of year. Students receive information and support as well as accommodations during their stay in our community. Liz and Mike Bennett of Woodlawn United Methodist Church are the directors of the activities at The ARK. Local law enforcement personnel and others associated with the N.W. Florida Regional Human Trafficking Task Force provide information to international students on safety and human trafficking risks. International students know that The ARK is a safe refuge during their stay in Bay County. Titus 2 is a partner member of the NW FL Human Trafficking Task Force, as well.
The Pour is open seven days a week during the summer season from 7a.m. – 3p.m., serving a variety of gourmet coffee drinks, fresh baked pastries, and a select daily breakfast and lunch menu. It is located at 12902 Front Beach Rd, just west of Clara Avenue, across from the new Holiday Inn Express. (850 234-3084) https://www.facebook.com/thepourpcb
