COMPASSION MINISTRIES

For I was hungry and you gave Me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited Me in, I needed clothes and you clothed Me, I was sick and you looked after Me, I was in prison and you came to visit Me.
– Matthew 25:35-36

  • Provide emergency food for those in our church body and community.
  • Provide and serve meals at a homeless shelter.
