Following Jesus in the City: Agape Church for the Homeless

Agape Church for the Homeless
Trinity Lutheran Church (292 St. Corner of Orange and Wall)
Sunday 8am

A group of us at ECV serve at Agape Church for the Homeless at 8am on Sunday mornings. It's a space for prayer, worship, teaching, conversation, food and resources. Everyone's story is different. Some have lost their homes in the financial crisis, others are addicted, some have been through gang violence and survived. We bring our own stories even as we share in the mourning and joy of others. We worship together and then have a time of conversational teaching about who God is: A loving Doctor? A tyrannical boss? Someone with power? Someone who can intervene and change our situation? After that, we pray and talk over a meal.

We've seen God change others. We've seen God change us. God has given people homes and jobs, hope and power for struggles with addiction, bigger hearts for loving enemies, more desire to see their friends experience God. God has given us a community.

So, this Sunday come to experience this community ECV has blessed and been blessed by. It will be a regular Agape service simply with a broader invitation and expectation that more folks from ECV will come. Hope to see you there.

If you have any questions, please contact Josh.
