OUTREACH AND SERVICES
Jesus said, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kindgom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me." - Matthew 25:34-36
