It’s Time to Sing the Resurrection Song

Members of Second Baptist dance their shoes off and donate them to Star of Hope and other Houston ministriesEaster is just a week away, and everyone at Star of Hope is already rejoicing!

We see the transformational power of Easter at work in lives every single day, as God brings forgiveness, healing and restoration to thousands in our community each year through the ministries of Star of Hope.

This past Sunday, 2,000 members of Second Baptist Church danced at Discovery Green in downtown Houston, joyfully celebrating Easter and singing a special song commemorating the resurrection of Christ. And at the conclusion, they “danced their shoes off” and donated hundreds of them to the Star of Hope Mission. We are so grateful for this new supply of new shoes for those in our community who are recovering from homelessness at Star of Hope’s four facilities around town.

Thank you, Second Baptist Family, and all of the churches in Houston who volunteer their time, provide worship services, do donations drives, and welcome Star of Hope Clients into their church activities. All of the body of Christ in Houston celebrates new life this Easter!

If you want to volunteer or get involved in Star of Hope’s ministries to homeless men, women and children in Houston, please visit Volunteer Opportunities Houston.

It made my cry too. Especially when I saw some senior citizens dancing their hearts out for Christ the Savior. I wish more churches in Texas will follow their steps to help out the needy like this during this season.

This is AWESOME on at two accounts. First - the homeless were helped with more than left overs, and in great numbers. Second - that so many church members were actually willing to spend the time it took to produce such an event. God is, was, and will forever be risen, alive, and all sufficient!
