We are a place of healing and nourishment, where folks respond to each other’s human needs.

Our first job is to pray for the world, for her salvation, your salvation and our salvation. We know that praying to end hunger is without meaning, unless you also feed those who are hungry. So we feed the hungry without question!

Why does the Lord allow there to be poor among us? “For your good, so that you may…
