Recently, Henry Penner shared with us that he is spearheading a project that will be reaching out to the homeless in our community. Our missions committee and church leadership is fully in support of this initiative.
“It’s a chance to give back to the community.”
Refresh Mobile Showers came into existence when Henry felt a passion to find a practical way to show God’s love to those in Abbotsford who don’t have access to the everyday comforts that most of us do. It is exciting to see the partnerships of many agencies in our community in regard to supporting this project.
“It seems to us as leaders that God has opened this door, even when we tried to shut it. And so what are we going to do about it?”
– Pastor Leonard
The shower trailer has been purchased, but funding is still needed for operational costs.
THANK YOU for your generosity!
We are excited that as of May 1, 2019, the shower trailer is officially “in use.” To date we have partnered with both the Bakerview Church and MCC to serve our community. Please stay tuned for more updates as we get into the routine of providing showers regularly in different parts of Abbotsford.
The Refresh Shower Ministry is looking for people who feel moved by God to help fund this outreach. We as a church are providing some funding, but we are trusting for enough funds to be able to use the trailer consistently. Please consider partnering with us.
