Who We are
FaithWorks encourages people to live out their faith. We might be holding a hand while someone is dying, or praying before someone goes into surgery, or listening to someone in crisis. We might be picking up a piece of litter, or hammering a nail, or painting a wall. We might be planting a seed, or mentoring a child, or driving someone to the doctor. FaithWorks can be different things to different people…an opportunity ….an angel in time of need…a resource. We offer hope, encouragement, love and support.
