At LifeHouse Care, our mission is to work for the peace and wellbeing of our community by meeting people where they are at, expressing Jesus’ love through helping, connecting and empowering individuals, families and communities.
LifeHouse Care is our community-focused, social expression of mission — outworked practically in our local geography — from our CareHouse in Earl Street where we offer Crisis Support, to our Op Shops, each of which have a companion Food Pantry.
“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with your God.”
