September speaker series

Come and join us this Thursday (Sept 10) for the continuation of FOCUS Gateway City's speaker series. My pastor Rev. Steven Salaris will be speaking on hades and hell, and what are the differences; it's a riveting talk. And then on the 24th, Dr. Alden Bass will be speaking on the New-Monastic movement in America (if you don't know anything about this topic, you probably have to go!).
Please message us if you have any questions, otherwise we will see you Thursday!

Just a little off the top...

Sometimes, it's the little things in life that make all the difference.
Today, FOCUS took our friend to get a haircut; his first haircut in two years.

With a big smile said that after his haircut he "felt sharp." Indeed, he looked quite dapper.

Some days FOCUS does big things like give away hundreds of shoes or serve 200 meals. Other days we do our best at instilling a little bit of dignity in our friends that live on the streets through simple things like helping them to get a haircut.

Christ lived, died, and resurrected to help show us that we were all created in the image of God and that our lives have a higher purpose. Today, at FOCUS Gateway City, we helped our friend catch a small glimpse of the beauty, that image, that God has instilled in him and in all of us.

A Bright Morning Breakfast Amidst the Downpour of Rain

The downpour of rain didn't stop FOCUS from serving over 120 hot delicious breakfast meals to the community members who came to the Wednesday Pantry! Thank you to Four Seasons Wealth Management for their dedication to providing hot pancakes, eggs, bacon, fruit, coffee and juice each quarter to those struggling with their basic needs in St. Louis. It was such a warm and positive atmosphere today and everyone really enjoyed!
God bless and don't forget to contact FOCUS to find out how you can be part of this blessed work of service. http://www.focusgatewaycity.blogspot.com/
