“Much of Jesus’s life here on earth was spent sitting with a small group in a small space over a simple meal, talking about repentance, forgiveness and grace.

Nothing flashy. Just ordinary life bending down to meet the needs of people.” // Jennie Allen

On this International Women’s Day we applaud the women within our communities and on our staff who serve their families, local businesses, local churches, neighbors, and friends.

Our ministry, communities and cities are better because of their individual gifts and how they use them to show love in the strongest of ways.

These women empower younger generations with their tenacity to fight for injustice.

These women are not afraid to lean in and learn from others.

These women show the power of unity when bonded together in Christ.

These woman show a true image of beauty with their reflection of their creator.

//we all have a part. Let that sink in.
follower’s of Jesus have a part in His story that tells of love, joy, peace, and freedom.

Our parts of the story do not have to be be over the top or even visible by others.

What matters is how we are willing to use the parts of our lives, which can serve others and tell the story of Jesus’ love.

How are you doing your part?

Love one another.

These are action words. These are words that bring transformation. These are words that carry sacrifice, healing and Hope.

Jesus gave the ultimate example of love. May our lives show if even in the smallest way the beautiful power of Jesus’ love.

Happy Birthday Rosa Parks!

Rosa Parks was born February 4, 1913. When she was forty-two, Parks refused to give up her seat on a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama, to a white passenger, which at the time, the law required of African-Americans. She was arrested for her act of civil disobedience and worked with others from the NAACP to start the Montgomery Bus Boycott. The resulting integration of city buses in Montgomery ignited the civil rights movement in the United States and inspired nonviolent movements for social change around the world.

Rosa Parks commented, “People always say that I didn’t give up my seat because I was tired, but that isn’t true. No, the only tired I was, was tired of giving in.”

Part of who we are as an organization is to help remind others of the purpose God has for them in their life. Sometimes that purpose gets lots, forgotten, even buried. But thankfully God makes a way to unearth and reveal who he has created us to be.

Our friend Curtis has been given the opportunity to work through our Job Force program, which is linked to our coffee business @vigilanthoperoasting.

Together, with donations and the support of our coffee business, we are able to provide mentorships and jobs for our friends.

//Thank you for partnering with us to help serve and love our community.

During these winter months when the days are frigid and even wet, spend time in prayer for our friends on the streets.
We cannot know their circumstances, even their choices. But God does. He knows and greatly loves each one of them.

Inspiring others to stand up and speak out was a legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Got me a pretty good job now and have got myself in the habit of only buying things we have to have. Think I could afford a place to live. The place we are getting help from for them is on hold. This pandemic really messed up some stuff. I didnt get sick but it still affected me in a way.
Please join us in supporting Vigilant Hope and our community in need! https://www.facebook.com/events/709463483186141/
Reaching out for a little help. I'm in need of a 29 inch tube for my bike. I got a tire from switching gears but they didn't have a tube. My bike is very important to me and is my only means of getting around other than walking that I prefer not to do. Thanks to all. Stay blessed and stay well.
Yay, I found a place to send some donations. I Will be spreading the news!!! 🙂
Do accept clothing donations? I have good condition smaller size women's and med-large size men's clothes, including cold weather and coats. Would love to know the clothes are going directly to folks who need them the most
