“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours” Mark 11:24
We are now in a new facility, new space - formally named the “InterServ Community Center” at a new address 5400 King Hill Avenue.
With this move comes many changes and many opportunities for us to serve this community. And we remain mindful that this new center is from the dreams and prayers of so many people over the years who have helped this next place become a reality, and home for the next 100 years. It has been that expressed confidence in prayer, as reflected in the Gospel of Mark above, which continues to guide the work of InterServ.
Even with the major changes for us, what remains steady and unchanging is our purpose - creating ways for faithfully serving people to respond to God’s call to serve those in need, especially those with the fewest alternatives in life, “...so that all may live more fully, more capably.”
Your involvement in InterServ as volunteer and donor, in actions and prayers, is vital in addressing the social ills of our day, to lessen the impact those conditions have on the human family. In other words you are answer to prayers which will mentor youth in the after-school program; nurture infant and child in early care centers; give care and comfort to isolated homebound seniors; welcome and be voice for the refugee and immigrant families seeking a better life; provide aid and assurance to families facing crisis.
It is through your acts of compassion that we fulfill InterServ’s Vision of being judged by others as “friend to the poor and vulnerable.” Please drop by the new InterServ Community Center for a visit and tour.
On behalf of the board, staff and persons served we thank you for your support that has given us this new foundation of a building and a steadfast mission. Your generous support helps us address the challenges that people face each day.
And because of you as we reflect on our rich history and in contemplating our future, we remain confident in the knowledge that God’s goodness prevails.
+Let us continue to pray for one another
