The new, permanent site is located at 91 Welts Street in Mount Clemens (the former Abraham Lincoln Elementary School building) and will serve as a valuable resource, offering counseling/mentoring services, a community garden, food and clothing pantry, youth ministry, as well as onsite free healthcare through McClaren Macomb on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Childcare will be offered during regular services. The church’s youth ministry will empower through mentorship, including gang resistance training.
