Workers at South Florida Baptist Hospital received a surprise Tuesday evening when they entered the parking lot for their shift change.
Plant City Church of God’s Head Pastor Jeff Robinson and his wife Carla Robinson, Youth Pastor Jeremy Bendorf and his wife Karen Bendorf, Executive Pastor Gerron Ayento and his wife Tami Ayento and Children’s Pastor Greg Davis and Billie Jo Davis led the charge on the sidewalks near the hospital and in the employee parking lot near the ER side entrance. Several of their congregation, including much of their youth, arrived with masks and signs to cheer the workers at SFBH on.
All in all, more than 60 members arrived at the scene and showed their support for approximately an hour from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
The community responded to the spontaneous pep rally as well with car honks and hand waves as they passed by.
