Love In the Name of Christ of Southern Chautauqua County will hold its annual purse auction on Friday from 6-9 p.m. at the Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, 35 W. Fairmount Ave., Lakewood (across from the Hospice Building). There will be a $5 entrance fee at the door. Proceeds from the auction will be used to further Love INC's efforts toward assisting the poor and the needy with compassion, generosity and action.
Love INC exists to help churches fulfill their biblical mandate to minister to the poor and needy, and works in collaboration with 29 area Christian churches and 50 partner agencies in Southern Chautauqua County, linking services, ministries and volunteers with those in need.
Through relational ministry, Love INC helps individuals and families that are in chronic need to make lasting changes in their lives. Using a "clearinghouse" model, Love INC trains and links church members with those in need on a long-term basis to provide mentoring, goal-setting, skills-training, and spiritual and emotional support.
