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. We pack out the place with an unlikely mix of those living on the streets to meet physical, spiritual, and relational needs.

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 blood.  The most amazing part of this journey is to watch the Holy Spirit at work.  Whether a friend is high or low, just turned a trick, or about to find one, for a brief moment the streets take pause and read the...
