Hope Children’s Home
Community involvement is vital to Living Stones Nazarene Church. We actively partners with Hope Children’s Home in Clovis. Originally founded in Florida in 1968, Hope Children’s Home has rescued nearly 5,000 children between new born to 18 years old. The type of children we care for are not juvenile delinquents, but rather children that need our help. Through no fault of their own, these children needed rescued. In fact, some of the children have simply come out of a situation where a parent just needed help. If you would like to volunteer your time to help at the Children’s home, please let us know.
The Hope Children’s Home meets the needs of children that includes a bedroom, meals, clothing, and God loving people around them. Living Stones now provides financial assistance as well as a workforce of people when needed for special projects.
“There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down
and lifting people up.”
Mission El Paso
From Oct. 1, 2018 through January, more than 25,700 family units were apprehended in the Border Patrol’s El Paso sector, which also includes New Mexico. As the number of families apprehended skyrockets, nonprofit and faith-based groups are scrambling to ensure that migrants seeking asylum aren’t let out onto the streets without shelter. Many churches of all denominations heard about the influx and moved into action. So, Living Stones works and supports the efforts of Mission El Paso. Our team helped purchase a van to aid in transporation of migrants to other towns. Mission groups are being formed now to help with shelter and daily living needs.
Matt 25 Hope Center
Over the years this mission evolved making Matt 25 a one stop community resource center. Hurting people are walking through our doors receiving all different kinds of help through the ministries and agencies that now comprise the “Hope Center” as people prefer to call it. They know the Hope Center is a safe place where they will be treated with dignity and offered words of encouragement. Living Stones church members work at various agencies at the center. One of the newest projects has been the Community Garden that is shown below.
