Join Micah’s downtown churches throughout the Lenten season for ecumenical worship services. Each Wednesday at noon, one of the downtown churches will host with a guest preacher from a different Micah congregation. Our community of faith is excited to resume this important, pre-covid tradition.
Micah Street Church is an ecumenical worshipping community of current and formerly unhoused neighbors (and those who love them). Although only three years old, it is becoming an inclusive place for neighbors to gather, sow seeds of faith, and grow as a missional community.
Fredericksburg’s downtown churches began their journey toward the vision for Micah Ecumenical Ministries almost 18 years ago. We’ve now been at this as many years as there are miles to the treacherous Jericho Road of the Good Samaritan story. Along the way, encounters with our neighbors’ suffering have taught us much about the home God envisions for humanity, and how we are called to take part.
165,000 Times: Thank you!
To say that our hearts are full from the showing of community that we experienced Saturday night could not be more of an understatement. A total of 509 people showed up to walk, 56 volunteered and so many others showed their faith in the dream of being a community where no one sleeps outside. More than $165,000 was raised to support the work our downtown churches are doing through Micah and bring the vision for Jeremiah Community to reality.
