THANK YOU, PARTNERS!

Nearly 22 years!! That's how long we have been in this location. So hard to believe. We want to thank YOU! We are fueled by your love and compassion. We give God all the Glory and thank Him for bringing us together. We pray you will continue to partner with us to bring hope to the hurting and love to the broken, in the name of Jesus.

WE ARE REPLACING OUR ROOF...AND WE NEED YOU!

In February it will be 22 years since God opened the door for us to feed and minister to the hungry, homeless, and hurting. Long ago, to keep rent low, we agreed to take care of the building. Now it is time to replace the roof. We've had estimates ranging from $7,300 to $30,000 (you read that right). It's been a few months and we have only been able to raise a bit over $1500. As we continue to solicit donations, we ask for your prayers...and we ask you to SHARE! Share our need with your partners and share our Facebook posts.

Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!

HOW CAN YOU PLUG IN?

We have so many wonderful ways you can plug in with us!

  • MENTORS are needed. What happens when new Christians walk out the door? They need a partner then more than ever. Please email us if you are willing to walk with a new christian as a mentor.
  • Blankets, socks, hats, and gloves!! These items save lives in cold weather.
  • Blessing Bags: We are always collecting gallon bags containing snacks (high protein), deoderant, Kleenex, soap, shampoo, conditioner, tooth paste, tooth brush, and sanitary napkins.
  • The food pantry and clothes closet is open after 5 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. We need continuous donations of non-perishable food items and clothing.

UPCOMING EVENTS

  • November 20th @ 6pm - Thanksgiving bags will be given out at our Thanksgiving program
  • December 15th @ 6pm - Christmas toys will be given out for ages 2 - 14 years old

GET YOUR YOUTH INVOLVED...

Are you looking for a way to get your youth involved in the community and ministry? Help them organize a fundraiser or provide a meal one evening at our facility. Blessing Bags and collections for blankets, bags, gloves, and hats are perfect activities for youth groups.
