Alternative Ways To Get Involved
Prayer Walk Lunch and Snacks
Every other Tuesday the Ministry staff walk the neighborhood and talk to our neighbors. Staff see how families are doing, what is happening in their lives at the moment, and ask for prayer requests. Many of our neighborhood residents have suffered income loss due to COVID-19 restrictions. We would like to be able to provide a meal to these families as we visit and minister with them each week.signup.agapedevelopment.org
