Hearts & Hammers

What is Hearts & Hammers?

Our mission is to use our time and talent to meet the needs of those around us in order to create an opportunity to share the love of Jesus. We will perform household repairs for those who cannot afford them free of charge. Those who can afford to buy materials only, we will provide labor at no charge. 

This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ lay down his life for us and we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth. 1 John 3:16-18
