The Serving Station is painted!

 

Keeping with the mission to create a comforting and welcoming space, the walls have been painted a soothing sage green. The excitement at having another stage done is staggering. There are still quite a few areas to work on before we can fully open.

What's Next?

  • Floors - We're adding finished floors to the serving station to complete the look. As you can see from the first image, it's currently unfinished concrete.

  • Shelving - This area will also house our food pantry where bread, baked goods, and other items can be picked up for free.

We're also beginning to work on Operation Love! We know you are ready to bring those donations. This area needs to be finished so that donations can be sorted and arranged for our guests.

Let There Be Walls

The Serving Station is almost finished!

 

It's exciting to see the walls constructed, the floors laid, and all those shiny appliances in place. We continue to thank God and all the incredible people He has sent our way. We wouldn't be here without His continued hand guiding us every step of the way. His favor is moving mountains.

Thank you for your prayers as we go through inspections to ensure the space is up to code and everything is in order. There is still work to be done but much progress has been made and we can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

A Work in Progress

We know everyone is anxious to hear how we're progressing on the new building. There is still quite a bit of work to be done but everything is moving forward. In April the city granted the permit to begin work on our Serving Station. Most of the appliances were purchased so that work could begin installing the correct plumbing, wiring, and other necessities.

However, The Gathering Place is just about done!! Hours and hours of love and sweat have been put in to make this area an inviting, comfortable space for people to come together. We are astounded at the number of people who donated items, time, and skills to create this room. From the woodwork to the pillows, love has been poured into every corner and will continue to be. We can't wait to share it with you!

We've Signed A Lease!

Love in Action is thrilled to announce that we have found a new location! After a 3-month search, we have signed a new lease.

 

The number eight represents New Beginnings and we're excited about this new chapter at 818 University Ave. This location is a huge blessing as we will have more space to serve the community and conduct our programs.

 

We won't be able to start serving right away and will need the help of our community to renovate the space and get ready to open. We appreciate your support and can't wait to open the doors to this new location soon!

After five amazing years, our season at 414 University Ave has come to an end and we will be leaving the building at the end of January.

414 University was an incredible blessing given to this ministry and we will be forever grateful for this miracle that came along just when we needed it.

While we don't have a new home yet, we are believing God for a bigger location that allows us to better serve the needs of the many guests who come through our doors. We are walking in faith knowing that God has great things in store for our next chapter.

We are exceedingly grateful to everyone who has been with us on this journey. Please continue to keep us in prayer.  Also, make sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to stay updated. We can't wait to see the ways God leads us to serve the community in the interim.

We thank you for your patience and assistance as we make sure our guests are aware of all the services available to them.

We ask that you join us in prayer for two things:
1) A safe place for our guests to go
2) A new location downtown for our organization to call home

Below you'll find our schedule for January.
