End Homelessness with Nest mission
We believe that 1) Spirituality is essential as homeless often ask serious spiritual questions as to who they are, what is the purpose of their life, and where God is in all of their struggles. 2) Many dinner guests express their need to cry out to God for help. 3) The Board of the Nest Mission, as well as the various cooking groups, want to offer our dinner guests a chance to worship God as our purpose states, but we don’t impose Christian faith on them. We respect their choices. 4) The worship service and the messages help undo the damage done to them by assisting them to experience positive, loving and forgiving God rather than judging, condemning God. 5) They are encouraged to lay down all of their troubles and guilt before God and experience healing.
Before we have a dinner, we hold a service for God. Through the words of these services, we instill in the homeless and any other soul more faith, teach prayers and encourage a habit of giving thanks to God first, giving them more direction in life. In short, they meet a way to be saved at their meals. Local praise teams and clergy members sometimes come praise God with us or have service with us. The doors are always open; we welcome all of you to join us.
SINGING & CHOIR
Before pandemic we used to have a choir team praising at our worship service under the leadership of Rev. Luther Stohs and his wife, Dr. Sheryl Stohs. Since pandemic, however, we couldn't have our gathering at the church fellowship hall. Having gathered at the Free Showers (JKF Hygiene Center), some of musicians, like Paul, Bill, and Diane as well as Allen and Rich, have joined us to praise and make a joyful music during the meal service. Their wonderful music welcomes our homeless brothers and sisters to our service and makes them to worship God.
WEEKLY BIBLE STUDY & PRAYER CLASS
Due to the pandemic we hold our our weekly Bible Study. However, we keep doing our prayer meeting every week.
