City Lights Ministry is devoted to reaching children in the inner city of Winston-Salem to NYC to Asia.   God called Melanie Bell into children’s ministry in 1992.  Melanie uses her life experiences of growing up with an alcoholic father (and related hardships) to reach inner city children with the gospel of Jesus Christ.   In 6 short years, City Lights Ministry has grown to 10 Sidewalk Bible School events (happening twice a month) as well as a homeless ministry, single-moms ministry, after school tutoring and a summer feeding program.

 City Lights Ministry comes from the passage found in Matthew 5:14-16… 

“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. 

No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. 

In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.       Matthew 5:14-16  (NLT)
