White as Snow 2016

Photo highlights from our White as Snow ministry in 2016 – praise music on the street, Bible study, a warm meal, free laundry, and relationship building… We gather every last Thursday of the month to serve our community with free laundry.

Right Where You’re At

God is in the gutters of Hollywood.  Every week, we see Him on the streets.  From 11pm to 2am, friends gather to have church on the concrete.  We come from different backgrounds – homeless, college grads, high school drop-outs, saints, addicts, bangers, and believers – all broken but mended only with the glue of Christ’s […]

Even more true for me,  a bit timid just going to write an article about, I’d never  have jumped right in if God had politely asked and gave me the […]
