Love INC and Christ Community Church of Allegan celebrate the dedication of "The Branches" laundry and shower pantry, their new partnership to meet the needs of neighbors in our community.
According to Pam Sebright of Christ Community Church, the idea for the Branches was launched out of a Bible study of Henry Blackaby’s “Experiencing God”, which God used to nudge the church to find a way to help those who are homeless in the community. That then led to a review of what needs exist and ways to meet them, with the church determining to start with something for those who didn't readily have access to a laundry facility and maybe a shower. They worked through many details , even including Wifi and a computer for any client needing internet access or for homework. We at Love In the Name of Christ are so excited to be partnering with Christ Community Church in this ministry. They have a great vision for how the Branches can grow to help in even more ways within this community. Please join us in praying for God’s wisdom and provision to guide the growth and development of the Branches so that it best serves His purposes and glorifies Him.
The local church is God’s answer to community brokenness and a part of His plan of redemption and restoration. That’s why we mobilize local churches to offer a holistic approach to caring for people in all areas of life: spiritual, mental, emotional, relational, material, and physical.
