Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

Our objective is to meet the spiritual, practical and emotional needs of those seeking employment. As we’ve all seen in the national and local economic reports, unemployment is heading toward record highs and recovery is going to be a long process.
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” The Lord has not forgotten his people and He is the ultimate source for eternal life.

And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.'"
