Church Army

The Church Army has a mission of faithfully showing up for the brittle in society in ways that are practical and spiritual. You may join them on the streets of Hartford serving and loving the homeless on Saturdays, or in one of the three area nursing homes they reach each month. They show up with many practical items, including the hope we have in a God who unstoppably loves us right where we are, but the greatest gift you bring is your time and friendship. Join them for one of their many opportunities, whether it is relational or behind the scenes. Come love and be loved.
