Mercy & Outreach
We partner with two great organizations in order to meet the needs of the community in Downtown Lexington. Here's how to get involved at each of those organizations:
The Nest is a center for Women, Children, and Families that provides a safe place for education, counseling, and support to children and families in crisis. Their programs focus on the prevention of physical and sexual abuse, neglect of children, and the stabilization of the family unit.
The best way to get involved is by volunteering as a “Storytime Hero,” which only takes 10-15 minutes during lunch, and you can bring your own book or use one from the Nest’s library. Please email Jenny Norman to sign up.
The mission of Lighthouse Ministries is feeding the needy, helping the hurting, directing the lost. We will serve as Neighborhood groups to provide a meal every other Wednesday evening.
We will be collecting various items that the Nest and Lighthouse need throughout the year. Items will be collected at church and taken to the Nest or Lighthouse.: September 18, December 11, March 5, and June 11
