Neighborhood Ministries Church

This past year, we celebrated 40 years of God’s faithfulness in our community. We are witness to his Hope, Love, and Power transforming people’s lives from all walks of life.

2022 was a year that brought many challenges but with those challenges comes learning and growth. Being part of the body of Christ means we are connected to one another. Being connected means that we are present with each other and are part of each other’s lives.

These connections and relationships happen when we gather for worship, when we get together to celebrate weddings, quinceañeras, birthdays, baby dedications, when we are present at funerals mourning together, when we advocate for our community, in other words when we show up.

    No one has greater love than this —that one lays down his life for his friends. John 15:13 There is no better time than Easter to reflect on love. Better than Valentine’s Day, better than anniversaries or weddings or baby showers. There is nothing that gives us hope or meaning or rescue like the love…

He is repentant and reflective, and for the first time since this long incarceration began, he is seeking God’s help. His heart was hard for so long, and his…

    Meet Irene Tomas.  The old neighborhood only exists in our memories. Gentrification and urban renewal have transformed broken-down houses and abandoned streets into trendy coffee shops and high-rise apartments. When I listen to Irene, there I am, there she is, and hundreds of others in the old days, in those old streets and alleys. We can all…

    Traditionally at Easter, during our church services and celebrations of the day, we have baptisms. It’s the kind of baptism where people bring testimony to their changed life, written down, and come prepared to go under the water in identification with Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection. It’s always a joyful part of our day. We…

    Meet Felipa Torres and her son Adolfo.  The term “resiliency” isn’t adequate to describe Felipa’s journey which we have been privileged to bear witness to.  Resiliency wrapped up in her faith, her focus, her undying spirit of service and leadership … maybe that’s better!  One thing is for certain, she becomes a representative of the…
