This looks like partnering with area ministries to provide critically needed hot meals to nearly 100 people each week, curating a safe place for kids to hang out, and engaging hard questions about a God who cares about the very real needs of folks pressed up against their limits. We get to see lives transformed by the power of Christ, lonely people embraced in community, and connections made to needed resources.
