Invisible Neighbors, An Important New Study Series

Invisible Neighbors tells the story of the desperate and destitute in our midst and reiterates Jesus' instructions to love your neighbor as yourself. With a combination of printed word, videos, website and social media, this study series is designed to motivate believers to engage with the poor in a way that will impact their communities, their churches and their own lives.

The series is perfect for:

Project 58,  A Community Outreach Opportunity for Groups

Do you and your friends have a passion to minister to the poor and oppressed in our community?  Project 58 is an outreach opportunity inspired by  Isaiah 58:10, which reminds those who follow God to “to loose the chains of injustice, set the oppressed free, share your food with the hungry, provide the poor wanderer with shelter, clothe the naked and satisfy the needs of the oppressed.” 

Project 58 connects compassionate Christians with hurting people in our community.   It is a long-term commitment to provide ongoing support and love to our neighbors in need.  Please join Raleigh Rescue Mission as we reach out to targeted neighborhoods in need of friendship, a helping hand and the Good News of Jesus Christ.  Together we can bring hope to desperate neighbors.

To find out more about Project 58, please contact Karen Hoffman at or 919.828.9014 ext. 132.
