"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you cam to visit me. . . . . The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'"
Matthew 26:35-38; 40

Garber's intent is for every believer to know and know how to share the story of how s/he chose to follow Christ with a friend.
We encourage each believer to authentically invest themselves in the lives of neighbors, friends, and people who aren't Christians, then invite them to one of our weekend services.
