Why are we serving here?

One of the ways ForColumbia strives to love and serve our neighbors is by serving those non-profit organizations that are actively working every day in the lives of people in Columbia. Granny’s House is one of the small non-profits here in Columbia making a big impact in the lives of children. Granny’s House provides a safe, nurturing place where public housing kids can come each day after school (from 3-6 pm) to see values, manners, and God’s love in action. They provide loving arms, a safe place to play or do homework, and an atmosphere of hope and calm in an all-too-often chaotic world. This is why we think your day will be well spent serving here.
