Our outreach to the homeless and needy is a focal point of our ministry. Over 30 years ago when Pastor Larry was called into the ministry the Lord gave him Matthew 25:31-46 as his Scripture. In that passage Jesus tells us that whatever we have done to the least of these brothers of His, we have done to Him personally. Visiting, feeding, clothing, helping the poor and the needy - whatever we do we're doing unto Him.
Along with lunch, which is served every Saturday at 10:30am, we also provide showers, clean clothes, blankets and personal hygiene items to everyone who needs them. The needy come in at 9:00am for showers, and at times, when a barber comes, they may get a haircut. At every meal the Gospel is shared and people are asked to receive Jesus Christ as Savior. Anyone who needs a rehab program is referred to Teen Challenge or one of the other places we have a relationship with. We are committed to ministering to the whole person - Spirit, Soul and Body!
Church members and other volunteers help prepare and serve the food, give out clothing and look after the needs of the people. Workers are expected to treat our guests as if they were paying customers in a 5 star restaurant. Street people, especially, are not given much attention in the streets and we want to be sure they know they are loved and have great value in the eyes of God!
