Holy is not the one who never sins, but the one who repents and reconciles, changes and with the strength of God does not do it again. Holiness does not consist in never making mistakes or sinning . “Holiness grows with the capacity for conversion, repentance, availability to start over, and above all with the capacity for reconciliation and forgiveness.”
Have a blessed week full of forgiveness, reconciliation that leads to Peace!

They have recently begun leaving us with additional groceries to help meet the needs of the neighborhood for the rest of the month.
We are also leasing space to the Southern Nevada Health District for a sexual health clinic and vaccination clinic. We also leased space for COVID testing and vaccinations. This has been a great opportunity to reach out to the greater community.
Our Thrift Store has been a great help to our own community and recently began opening it on Tuesdays as part of our Outreach Tuesday. Families can find all sorts of gently used clothing and household supplies.
Finally, our newest project is Outreach Tuesday. Every Tuesday we have food bags for families in need and the Thrift store open fo
