I want to tell you about the church I go to and what they do. The name of the church is CITY REACH and its west side location is at 3801 Clark Avenue. Our Pastor is Justin Maslanka and his wife’s name is Suzie.
At Christmas time they had a Christmas Dinner for the needy and homeless people. We had about 150 people come to the dinner.
They pass out food every Thursday from noon to 2 pm through their food pantry ministry. This is for people who live in the area around the church. They also pass out hot meals and visit people in the hospital to pray for them.
He is a great preacher and I get a lot out of the services. It is a wonderful church. Church services are at 5:00 pm on Sunday nights. You do not have to dress up. Jeans and t-shirts are welcome! The church has a very casual feel. There is a live band for worship.
I was going through a hard time and they prayed for me. When he laid hands on me the first time I felt the power of God come over me and I was healed! From that point I have felt better and have had no more problems. I have seen Justin give hurting people food and minister to them. He has a lot of compassion and helps people with their needs. I feel love from the church every time I go into it.
Sometimes Pastor Stan Sifers preaches for Justin. He always has a smile on his face and he always helps people. He has given me a ride home when it was raining and he has offered to pick me up and take me to church. I feel like this is my family.
They have a children’s ministry at the church also. It’s called ReachKidz ministry and it meets each week for children ages 2 through 6th grade.
They are at 3801 Clark Avenue at the corner of W 38th and Clark. I would love to see readers of the paper visit us!
