READING, Pa. -

A church in Reading is encouraging people to "Come Home for Christmas."

Reading Dove Christian Ministry held its annual open house outreach Tuesday. The goal was to spread the word of Jesus and to let people know that someone is there for them.

"Just give them a sense that they can be safe here and just have hope and be loved and feel like they can be themselves," said Edward Ramirez, church member.

The outreach started with a feast and fellowship and ended with worship.
