Our faith demands more than awareness from us, and change requires more than meeting physical and emotional needs. We must reach to the depths of the human spirit with eternal hope that transcends the change of circumstances.
As a community that embodies hope that is found in Jesus, 5280 gladly serves alongside these organizations that are doing great good in our city. We do not "push our religion" on them nor do we require them to "think the way we do". We simply offer our hands, hearts, and, when asked, our faith to the greater good of our community.
