Please join area clergy, county leaders, and concerned community members as we join hands and hearts in the work of ending homelessness in Clark County. All proceeds to benefit the House of Mercy; a homeless facility in Loyal, serving local women and children.
The worship service will be on Saturday, July 22, 2017 at Allan & Connie Walter’s Farm; W4077 Heintown Rd.; in Loyal. Music begins at 10 am, the Worship Celebration is at 10:30 am, and Lunch at Noon.
The House of Mercy began as a community initiative born from the compassionate hearts of local community members, churches, businesses, and local organizations. Catholic Charities was invited in to join their Beyond Shelter Program and resources to this initiative’s efforts. Their mission is to provide dignity and stability of a permanent home, as well as supportive services to homeless women and women with children from Clark County. House of Mercy is located in Loyal and currently has three apartments available for housing.
The House of Mercy also contains a small office and potential rooms available for single women/women with children for emergency housing. These rooms will offer shared cooking, laundry, washrooms, and dining space. Emergency housing is for a short-term stay. The funds raised from this event will help us finish these rooms and open the emergency housing facility.
Once again, our churches will celebrate the birth of Our Savior, Jesus of Nazareth, who is Emmanuel, God with us.
On Christmas Eve, Saturday, December 24, we will have services featuring Lessons & Carols with Communion and Congregational Candle Lighting as we sing “Silent Night.” At Emmanuel, the service will be at 4:00 p.m., with bell ringing to follow. Nazareth’s service will be at 6:00 p.m. The service at Our Savior’s begins at 8:00 p.m.
