    COMPASSION AND JUSTICE

    He has told you, O man, what is good;
        and what does the Lord require of you
    but to do justice, and to love kindness,
        and to walk humbly with your God?

    -Micah 6:8 (ESV)

     

    We seek to be a church that does justice, loves mercy, and walks humbly with God—joining Him in what He is already doing in the greater Houston area among the vulnerable and marginalized. Scroll down to learn more about how to get involved in some local compassion and justice ministries.

    Prison Ministry
    7more

    As the ex-offenders walk off the bus at the greyhound station, wearing their shame, prison-issued clothes, and carrying a laundry bag, they try to avoid the condescending looks and fear in the people that observe them.  Simultaneously, they are greeted by 7more with a message of hope, strength, and dignity. The 7more family meets ex-offenders being released back into society at the greyhound bus station with not only fresh clothes, shoes, and bags, but also a fresh start. On top of immediate needs, 7more also provides ongoing resources and information over the following weeks to point the ex- offenders towards stable work and housing.  Come help us greet these ex-offenders as a church family!

    WINGS—Women’s Prison Ministry

    http://wingstofreedom.net/

    WINGS helps incarcerated women discover and embrace their identity in Christ while learning essential skills necessary to meet the challenges of life. They provide a seven-module series on how to complete a job application, create a resume, interview for a job, manage your money, and create an individual customized plan for success when released from incarceration. The program is very practical, but faith-based and emphasizes the importance of building a personal relationship with Jesus, finding a church home when released, and starting/continuing a discipleship journey.

    At Hope Family Care, we walk with families who have lost a child as they learn to navigate their pain and grief while bringing hope and healing. Each family is supported through personal communication, receiving of Hope Bags, family retreats and events, support tailored to their individual needs, and connection with other families who have experienced a similar loss. We believe no family should have to walk through the loss of a child on their own. Hope Family Care provides community that families need as they move forward though their loss in a healthy way.
