Centralia Nazarene has EIGHT compassionate connections.
"When you live in a largely rural community like Lewis County, having a car is essential for keeping a job. And yet it’s one of the first things we neglect when money gets tight, says John Klumper, co-director of the Auto-Care Ministry, which helps people in need with simple car maintenance and repair. John works with clients and sponsors while Brad Althauser, the other co-director, works with the cars and mechanics. In 2003, Mark Hagar, then pastor of the Centralia Church of the Nazarene, started the ministry based off one he had heard about in Florida. Since then, it has grown to be a community project, with help from many churches and businesses county-wide. For those involved, it’s a family affair." -Lewis Talk,
