SERVICE IN THE COMMUNITY
In Acts 4, we see that the early church was “of one heart and soul, and no one said that any of the things that belonged to him was his own, but they
had everything in common.”
We believe that Jesus called us to see that the needs of the believers within the context of the local church are met. The City Lights Mercy Fund is used to supplement our church budget towards caring for those in need within the church family. It is used for basic needs, job training, life-skills training, and the easing of financial burdens.
Although City Lights’ primary focus is on those within the church,
we also believe that we are called to serve the greater St. Louis area.
The Mercy Team seeks to point the church towards reputable organizations
throughout the city. By our love and compassion, we want to bring forth the
gospel and serve like Jesus did.
Below are some of the organizations that we encourage our members to seek out when getting involved in the community:
