September 9 - September 14
Did you know that one in seven women live in poverty and unsafe homes despite their best efforts to make ends meet? This fall, Crossings is working with Rebuilding Together OKC to change the lives of three women in the 73114 community with total home transformations. Through this short-term opportunity to Be Neighborly, men and women can help make repairs and upgrades to these homes that the homeowners are unable to do, either physically and financially, on their own.
We ask for prayers for the three women who will experience the love of a church community that lives by faith, is a voice of hope, and is known by love.
