The Lord’s Doings
at Shining Light


God has given us the opportunity to shine the light of His love to our city in word and deed. We have worked with and served many families in need through our bus ministry and children’s home. From Neighborhood Bible Clubs to local school Bible clubs to Collegians for Christ at Wingate University to multiple nursing homes to providing groceries and clothing through our community Days of Caring to working with our local women’s shelter, homeless shelter, and Crisis Pregnancy Center to serving as chaplains for our State Highway Patrol and Monroe Fire Department to hosting community events and participating in parades, we continually look for ways to impact our city for God and good. In 2021, God led us as a church family to donate our Lake Minnihaha 8 acre property to our city to be used as a recreation and training program facility. We want our neighbors and city residents to know and see the love of God expressed through His people in a tangible way.
