"We are our Brothers' Keeper"
On January 3, 2003 "The
Soldiers of Christ" from "The Love Corner', visited the SET-FREE
Ministry. The SET-FREE Ministry is a facility that houses the homeless.
The shelter's purpose is to provide an environment of healing and recovery
from addictions through Jesus Christ. In addition they promote tenant
programs that aid them in intergrading back into society. "The
Soldiers of Christ" are a blessing to the tenants and their children
by distributing homemade dessert, punch and toys for the children. They
also extended an invitation to the residents to visit the United House
of Prayer. The children were so delighted that they sang a song to the
members of "The Soldiers of Christ" to express their gratitude.
The residents of the "SET-FREE
Ministry was also blessed by the word of God, administered by Elder
T. Williams. Other members attending were Sisters A. Young, coordinator,
St. A. Mars, A. Marshall, B. Seyon, D. Woodson and Brothers J. Young

Thomas Williams. Committee members, St. Patricia Washington, Chairperson
and St. Gerri Dunn, sang songs of praise and worship and assisted
Elder Williams by reading scriptures.
On March 16, 2003, The Madison Adult
Choir visited the Sunbridge Nursing Home and delighted the hearts
