Outreach for Door of Hope, through February
The Door of Hope is a men's shelter, well, it's an old-fashioned rescue mission. It's more than about providing food, clothing and shelter. Dave Pendleton shares Christ with the men and helps them in their recovery from addictions. Dave will be with us at the 11:00 a.m. service on Feb. 10.
Here's how you can help this ministry. During the month of February, grab a tag from the board you'll see in the lobby and purchase the item you see there. Make sure you bring it back by February 24.
Men! We're going to have a men's breakfast on Sat., Feb. 16 at 7 a.m. Lots of good food for FREE! BUT . . . we'll have a basket there for you to toss in a few bucks for the Door of Hope. 100% of your gift goes to Door of Hope because some of our guys are donating all the food.
