Tour of Houston’s Fifth Ward

December 6, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

This is the fast I have chosen: to unlock the shackles of injustice, to loosen the yoke of tyranny, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every chain asunder…to share your bread with the hungry, and to bring the homeless into your house; when you see the naked, to cover them, never withdrawing from your own kin. – Isaiah 58:3-7

On Yom Kippur this year, we committed ourselves to making these words from Isaiah a reality in one of the poorest corners of the city of Houston. Partnering with Rev. Harvey Clemmons, Jr. and Pleasant Hill Baptist Church we made a promise to tend to the needs of Houston’s Fifth Ward.

Join us for an afternoon in the Fifth Ward on Sunday, December 6 at 1:00 for lunch and a bus tour of the community. Please RSVP to admin@hcrj.org by November 20.
