Cultivating Connection in a virtual and in person community.
What our customers write about us
"Having the opportunity to connect with other Christians throughout the USA through our online interactive bible study on Tuesday nights from 7:00-8:30 PM has helped me grow by leaps and bounds over the past three years. We don't just listen to a preacher for an hour an a half, we are asked questions, given chances too privately process new information and the share out new learning if we feel lead to. It is also a good time to research biblical topics with Google if we get stuck. Learning, Connecting, and finding purpose makes me keep coming back every week. Thanks NLM!
"Getting a chance to connect with my friends, making flower arrangements and having a meal together in the park without having to plan or pay was the mental break that I needed to recharge."
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for
2020 reminded us of many things, but the greatest one is that God is in control and He directs our steps. Actually He moves us in directions we would never imagine for ourselves. What began as a youth mentoring program has been stretched as a call to share God's love with others through meeting their immediate needs of food, shelter, laundry, transportation, prayer and encouragement. We have been humbled to learn of both the monumental struggle, and the healing power that in the form of a food delivery, school supplies, a rice cooker, a ride to the doctor, a prayer, and encouraging word can bring to those who are in need.
What We Do
God has brought us word of families in need from schools. churches, Facebook groups and a manager from an extended stay hotel. Once we identify the need, we coordinate with the family to meet and help however possible. We started with a Friday night call for an immediate need for food for a family of 7 living in an extended stay hotel room, and our ministry has grown to include dropping off food pantry items to families without cars to attending the drive through events, providing school supplies for kids working at home during the pandemic, buying warm clothes and shoes, giving rides to doctor's appointments and job interviews, washing clothes for a family without money for the laundromat, and the most fun: playing santa for 4 families where the kids would not have had any gifts for Christmas.
In addition to meeting physical needs, we pray with each family and remind them the God loves them and that we will walk alongside them as they navigate this difficult time. 2021 brings ongoing opportunities, and we will begin offering families micro grants to pay a bill if they participate in a coaching session designed to help them identify their issue and create steps to follow to bring them toward a solution to their financial roadblock. Our goal is to empower all families to reach the next level in power, love and good judgement.
