We are seeing God at work in our community in so many ways -- ways that are connecting and opening doors in that can only be explained as God's hand in this.
Jesus is calling us to prayer with Him ... and to mobilization of His believing Church as we join His lead to minister to the struggling. [ more on these examples ]
At this very time, one such project is forming to focus on more effectively addressing the homeless, and nearly homeless, individuals and families who tend to gather on the south side of Wooster. [ more on The Living Room Project ]
This is a real opportunity for the believing community to be brought into mobilization over the weeks ahead. Currently the project has some faith community involvement. However it is primarily lead by a Housing Coalition that is mainly made up of non-profit and governmental social service organizations.

This is an important opportunity for prayerful engagement. [ more on The Living Room Project ]
There are a substantial number of other activities relating to the local Church community engaging in our calling to minister to the struggling. These all offer opportunities to consider in prayer what God is doing and how we are to respond to His lead. [ more on other activities (pending) ]
With more than 200 church congregations in Wayne County the potential for local missions is substantial. Each congregation is situated differently in the level and effectiveness in addresses the needs of their own members and others who come into their path or are waiting for the church to reach out to them.
