DC Faith & Justice Network

My pastor and I, along with several others pastors in the Columbia Heights area, have been talking about the need for unity among churches in DC. There are many churches in DC doing great things, but how much more effective would our work be if we did these things together? Scripture talks so much about unity because God knew His Church would be so much more powerful if we were seeking His redemption for our city together. If we supported each other's initiatives, created programs together, connected each other to resources, advocated together and spoke out against injustices as one voice - how much more effective would the Church be? And there is a clear need in DC for this to happen. There is no unified evangelical faith movement in our city yet, and because we really believe our work could be so much stronger if we were unified, several of us have been thinking about starting an official Faith & Justice Network here in DC.

Restoration Ministries Benefit Concert

On Friday, March 16th there will be a concert, featuring local artist Bethany and the Guitar Sparrow, to benefit Restoration Ministries. Restoration Ministries is an organization here in DC that "seeks to bring healing to men, women and children who are trapped in the slavery of sex trafficking and lead them into the freedom of Jesus Christ." Sex-trafficking is an injustice that is sadly very alive in DC, and there is much for the Church to learn about the realities of this horror and how God has called us to take action. Restoration is one of the only organizations that focuses on this issue and ministers to these victims locally here in DC, so come out on the 16th, learn more about this issue, and take action by supporting the life-saving work of Restoration (as well as hear some great music)!

Here are the details:
Date: Friday, March 16th
Time: 7:30-9:30pm
Cost: Free, with a Love offering taken
Where: Ebenezer's Coffeehouse, 201 F Street, NE, Washington, DC

Empty Bowls is an opportunity for community members of all ages to gather for an evening of food, fun and friendship.  The events promote awareness about hunger in the Metro area and raise funds for SOME’s meal programs, which help to feed more than 1,000 hungry and homeless men, women, and children each day. Guests are invited to choose a beautiful handcrafted soup bowl made by local potters and enjoy a simple supper of soup, bread, and dessert donated by local restaurants.
