CompassionateCareLogo

Compassionate Care is a new Timothy ministry that provides help – and hope – to the homeless. Through the blessing of a member, a house was purchased to be used for a homeless family for one year, as they receive support and save for a home of their own. Please keep our first family, a mother and her four children, in your prayers as they adjust to living in and caring for a house.
