Jesus told us that after loving God, the next greatest commandment was to love our neighbor as ourselves. And so we try.
The neighborhood around us has had a rough go of it. In the 1960s, Broad Street Presbyterian Church decided to stay put
- not running away to the suburbs
- standing with our neighbors.
It has been a part of our story ever since—through our food pantry, a homelessness prevention program, afterschool tutoring program and daycare center. We also try to speak through advocacy programs, confronting injustices that prevent so many from thriving in the life God has given.
We know our efforts will never be enough, so we faithfully seek to find more ways to change our lives and to care for our neighbors throughout the world.
