This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine
“Little Lights Urban Ministries empowers underserved youth, families, and communities in Washington DC by sharing the hope of Christ through compassionate action, caring relationships, and racial reconciliation. Steve Park founded Little Lights in 1995 to share God’s love with under-served children and families in Washington, D.C. Little Lights has been committed to providing sanctuaries of encouragement, hope, and practical assistance to at-risk children, youth, and families in southeast Washington, DC. More than 900 children have participated in Little Lights’ programs throughout its history.” – littlelights.org
The Gathering is a program offered every Friday night for adults and teens to come together for dinner, fellowship, worship, and teaching. On December 16, 2016, the last Gathering for the year, the entire family was welcome to participate. To make the night even more special the children’s choir performed. “As Little Lights has grown, so have our students. By staying and being a part of our community for decades, we’ve had the joy of seeing how the work put into children bears fruit as they become adults. It’s the big picture that comes with a dedicated, lasting commitment.” – littlelights.org “Steve and his wife, Mary, moved to southeast D.C. over a decade ago to be closer to the people they serve. They live there today with their two young children.” – littlelights.org
