MATTHEW 25 "AS OFTEN AS YOU DO IT TO THE LEAST OF THESE YOU DO IT TO ME"

Mission Statement

Provide Food, Heat and Clothing to Widows in Need by a Volunteer Staff Connected to a Local Church

Compelling Concept
There are many unsupported Widows who live increasingly in Hardship. The Church has always supported Widows from the earliest days of Christianity. Mat 25 is based upon the Gospel Matthew 25 where Jesus speaks to His disciples telling them that if we minister to those in need we are in fact ministering to Him.
We love Jesus by Obeying His command to care for those in need.
