CITY SERVE

The city is a population center. If we’re to take the love of Christ to people, let’s take it to where most of the people are. The different facets of poverty are more often than not located within the city limits. God’s heart and direction leads us to the poor. Let’s follow God’s call to interact with the poor to bring them the hope of the story of Jesus.
