Community Light Homeless Programs;
Matthew 5:16 Let your light shine before people, that they may see your good works and praise your Heavenly Father.
The Community Light Program consists of housing and feeding several men in our Rescue Mission program.
Our Men's Rescue Mission exists to help those individuals who find themselves homeless for various reasons and need a time of living under a strict program to help them get their lives on the right track.
Those in the Rescue Mission programs are required to follow strict rules to help them get a better start in life. They are also required to meet with an overseer each week to help them find a job, plan a budget, etc.
During the summer we deliver lunches to children in the community Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday through the "Lets Feed Our Children" program.

Community Light History
Firehouse of God Ministries began the Community Light Program with the Free Feeding Program in 2005. We currently maintain 2 Men's Rescue Mission homes housing men from 1 day to 1 year or more. In 2011 we accepted responsibility (including 3 meals a day) for the Council House which houses 6-7 men on a continuous basis providing a 24x7 caretaker for the men. Volunteers sustain all of our programs.
