As followers of Christ and a community of faith, we believe the church is a welcoming and safe place for all–especially the poor and downtrodden. When a person comes in and ask for help putting gas in their car so they can go to a job interview or pick up a child from school or when someone asks for groceries that will feed their family of five for a week or more, we try to assist them in the spirit of God’s love.
We do so by offering grocery store gift and gas cards (when available) and giving some of the non-perishable food from our collection bins (which we maintain as part of our partnerships with other local non-profits). We also distribute a list of Gwinnett County and Atlanta area agencies that seek to lift people out of homelessness and working poverty. We’re not always able to help everyone who comes in our doors, but we give what we can when we have it, and seek to treat visitors with love as if we are caring for Christ himself.
