Our church has been evaluating how we can better reach out to our community.  I came across this quote from Ryan Phelps that fits perfectly:
“Not only can we be confident of a good future for American cities, but also of good opportunity for urban ministry. If cities experience great gaps in social services, this only opens a door for our churches to help in such a way that their neighbors will rejoice that we are here (1 Peter 2:11-12). Whether or not cities are rising or falling, the Christian church’s ministry in and to cities can and must continue to grow.”
