One thing we have learned over the years here at Neighborhood Ministries is the role of thanksgiving in the midst of ALL things that we face each day. There can be layers of tragedy that knock us down or terrifying realities that make us afraid, but … God will show up. God will make it better; he will remind us to trust him in the midst of it all. So we thank him, for things visible and invisible, for the provision that has come and for the provision that is yet to come. We give thanks everyday for you, also. You pray with us, serve with us and give financially to allow the work of NM to continue. Join us as we bring our thanksgivings to God. Here are just a few from some of our staff:
We love because God loved us. (1 John 1:9)
It is wonderful, as always to greet you. There is much happening at Neighborhood Ministries and we wanted to keep you updated.
We raced headlong into the Fall, with all our school year programs beginning. Here are just a few highlights of life at The Neighborhood Center: Katy’s Kids Pre-School launched enthusiastically into its second school year with two classrooms; the Fall garden is planted at Hope House; OpportuniTees is branching out with new customers; the Barrio Bike shop’s bike clinics are happening most afternoons, a new work force development grant is helping many youth and young adults, our young leaders have been mobilizing everyday getting out the vote, and strategic plans which consumed most of last year are in motion in all eight NM departments. I hope you will check out our newly updated web page which describes all we do most days.
