    Just want to congratulate you on your achievement. Not many of us (Churches of Christ) do not see the need to touch the lives of those right in our relevant environments. Well, every church has it’s purpose!
    Here where i am, (Northeast Church, Oklahoma City) we are active in our community trying to touch the lives of people in very significant ways. We Just completed building 32 affordable homes in a traditional neighborhood that needed revitalizing. Every unit is occupied and people are experiencing another level of living. We believe that everyone in the body should have a great sense of community sensitivity. I want to encourage any church that is doing these types of ministry to continue in His grace.
    We are looking to get our final approval on 34 units of housing for seniors as well.
