Compassion

Why Compassion?

God’s heart is overflowing with compassion for all people, and we see that through Jesus’ time here on earth as He loved in relational and practical ways. Because of His example, we are called to serve others with compassion both here in Milwaukee and around the world.  For more on ways to partner with any of these organizations, email us.
