Jesus said, “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, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me…” (excerpt from Matthew 25:35-40)
Our local outreach programs feed, clothe and welcome the stranger through our Helping Hands ministry.
