Do you ever look around and see someone:
- Hungry and feed them?
- Thirsty and give them a drink?
- A stranger and invite them into your home?
- Naked and give them clothing?
- Sick and care for them?
- In prison and visit them?
At Main Street Church we want the answer to be YES! Being the body of Christ we want to use what God has given us to shine the light of Jesus on each other and commit to meet the physical and spiritual needs of our community and beyond in our greater global community.
