Service In The Community
Lovingly Leading Individuals from Exploitation is an organization started by members of our church. It began as a phone bank-based effort and now partners with Redeemed Ministries and Rescue Houston (work days) which are agencies assisting women and teens exit life from sex trafficking. In these organizations, women are provided safe exits from trafficking, clothing, and safe home environments where follow up care is provided. These services include counseling, education, life skills training, and other classes that will help each individual re-integrate into society. LLIFE lends a hand with work days at their campuses, while helping to provide basic necessities. We also join with other groups to help meet the needs associated in preparing women to move out on their own. With a lot of love and some much-appreciated manpower, a whole apartment can be furnished and a new home created!

Boys and Girls Country
“The primary goal of Boys and Girls Country is to provide a home for children from families in crisis and to ensure their care, welfare, safety and security. In addition to furnishing their basic needs, our program works with each child toward two important objectives. First, each child is able to build relationships, acquire responsibilities, and grow and develop within the context of a stable, structured and loving home environment. Second, every child sets and achieves realistic short- and long-term goals with essential behavioral health support and remedial academic tutoring.” – from the Boys and Girls Country website
The Friendship Sunday School class has sponsored a cabin at Boys and Girls Country for years. This group plans monthly birthday parties, special events, forms relationships with the youth who live in the community, and so much more. This is a wonderful organization to give time to and a wonderful group of volunteers to spend time with!
