This month we are highlighting support for PEORIA RESCUE MINISTRIES.
Peoria Rescue Ministries is our Missionary Spotlight for the month of October. Its first outreach, Peoria Rescue Mission, reaches homeless and needy men with the gospel of Christ, while providing for their physical needs with food, clothing, and shelter. Since its inception, Peoria Rescue Ministries has expanded to include the Women’s Pregnancy Center, Victory Acres, Esther House, Barnabas Center, and an overseas sister ministry in Riga, Latvia.
Please be praying this month for the above programs of Peoria Rescue Ministries. Donations are accepted in the wooden box below the missionary map in the sanctuary (cash or check made out to “HCPC Missionary Society”).
Join Peoria Rescue Ministries for an evening of great food, inspiring client stories, and encouraging words from featured speaker Dr. Bryan Chapell. Doors open at 6 p.m. on Thursday, October 17. If you would like to attend, please contact Jerry & Joyce Easley. Deadline is this Monday, October 9.
“Is this not the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter – when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? …. If you spend yourselves on behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like noonday. The Lord will guide you always…. You will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.” - Isaiah 58:6-7, 10, 11a, 12b
