When were you there? You are HERE now, touching lives, and we thank you!
When did I? Welcome the stranger, feed the hungry, quench the thirsty, clothe the naked, give rest to the weary, visit a prisoner, or sooth the suffering?
YOU have served “the least of these” if you have said a prayer, brought a gift, had a good thought, been a volunteer, or given to the financial support of CityHeart, directly or indirectly through your support of Christ Church.
YOU welcome the stranger and the “other” every day as we open our doors to our neighbors in the community.
YOU quench the thirst of many lonely souls like John and Robert, with a simple cup of coffee or water served with a smile.
YOU feed the hungry like David and Tina with fresh fruit and a granola bar, a sack lunch, or a bus token to get to the nearest hot meal site or food pantry.
YOU clothe the naked like Anthony and Clayton who received coats in early October during a cold snap, or the many who will be thankful for hats, gloves and socks this holiday season and winter.
YOU give rest to the weary when folks on the fringe like Dorothy and Leland need a place to seek respite from the streets – to use the restroom & phone, to receive some referrals, or just to engage in conversation.
YOU visit with the prisoner when we assist the homebound and disabled over the phone, or speak with the mentally ill, imprisoned in their own bodies.
YOU soothe the suffering each time we listen with a caring heart and compassionate response with emergency help for those in crisis, like Robyn, Keith and the Johnson family.
CityHeart is YOUR ministry! In this season of giving, those of us who serve day to day as your hands and feet and HEART in this world, are especially thankful for all that YOU give.
TOGETHER we touch the lives of hundreds of people each month who might not otherwise know or experience the Love of God. THANK YOU!
Let not the needy, O Lord, be forgotten, nor the hope of the poor be taken away.
May the spirit of the season – Peace, Love, Joy and HOPE be with you always!
