Serve




Serve Others in Need



"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms."  1 Peter 4:10

As followers of Jesus Christ, we have been called to serve in our community. It is through the blessings we have received that we are to be a blessing to those in need of a touch from God. Wherever we go in the District of Columbia or region to pack and serve food, distribute clothes or visit the shut-in, we are taking the gospel of Jesus Christ with us and these simple kindnesses still proclaim Jesus Christ lives through us.


HOMELESS MINISTRY

Each week, a team goes to local shelters and District of Columbia parks to serve bag lunches you provide and offer a word of encouragement. Food, your smile and godly fellowship can lift the hearts of those who are often overlooked and also serve as a living witness of Jesus Christ.
