Garage Giveaway

This give-away will resemble an enormous garage sale, but there’s a catch: Everything is FREE!

  God has called us as Missionaries to our own community. We get the privilege of reaching out and meeting needs in Jesus name, for His glory, to show the world that there is a God in heaven who is good, who cares for the hurting, the down trodden, the poor and those who struggle to make ends meet.

Jesus in Luke 12:33 says, “Sell your possessions and give to the poor.”

when you see the naked, to clothe him, and not turn away from your own flesh and blood?"
