Less than a week into the campaign, the Raise the Roof project for Harmony Community Church in North Lawndale has raised over $21,000, more than 40% of its basic goal.
This campaign, hosted at Wheat Ridge Ministries' We Raise web site, is raising funds to fix Harmony's leaking roof and keep the rain from pouring into the sanctuary, the office space and the fellowship hall.
Harmony Community Church, led by Grace's former youth director, Pastor James Brooks, brings hope to a Chicago neighborhood plagued by poverty, crime and unemployment. Harmony's Food Pantry serves 350 families each week. Worship, James' powerful preaching, and the congregation's outreach activities bring the good news of Jesus' love and salvation to people in need--people who, with God's help, remain faithful and resilient.
