We will be updating these from time to time with new videos and audio tracks. If you have a suggestion of something you'd like to see, please let us know!
You might have noticed a homeless person sleeping on a park bench on the grassy area between the entrance and exit of the church. It is Jesus. Sculptured by Timothy P. Schmalz, the bronze figure is shrouded in a blanket and the only indication that it is Jesus is the visible wounds on the feet. The sculpture is a beautiful and somewhat unsettling visual reminder that Jesus is not only found, loved, and served within the walls of our House of Prayer, the church, but we are called and sent to recognize, love, and serve Jesus in one another, particularly in the poor and marginalized. We enter the church to pray, and we leave to serve. May the homeless, faceless, man on the bench inspire us to recognize Jesus in His many disguises and to serve Him, for He tells us, “whatever you did [or did not do] for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did [or did not do] for me.” (Matthew 25: 40,45)
"Prayer in action is love, and love in action is service...We are all God's children so it is important to share His gifts. Do not worry about why problems exist in the world - just respond to people's needs...We feel what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean, but that ocean would be less without that drop."
