An important part of our church's mission is to reach out and help others. In our efforts to lift the fallen, aid the poor, and work for better living conditions in society (and particularly in our community), we run and support several outreach groups.

Evanglism of Grace

Who are We?
We are concerned members of this community, like you, who have decided to confront the institutional oppression and social inequities that have gone unaddressed for far too long.

What Is the Evangelism of Grace?
The Evangelism of Grace is a spiritually focused initiative led by concerned members of our community who are striving to bring our communities back to a place that is vibrant, safe and nurturing.

What Is Our Purpose?

We are seeking to engage the community at large and, ultimately, become a unifying factor in the quest for consciousness and solidarity to create a community support system for sustainability.
What are Our Objectives?
  • Having the body of Christ fully engaged in a common mission of transformation within a community setting
  • Developing a discontent for the condition of the poor through a spiritual awakening
  • Addressing the political climate that maintains the poor and blacks in their condition
  • Using the grace God has given us to impact our communities where we live

Feeding the Homeless for Christ

The mission of Feeding the Homeless for Christ is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to empower individuals to help satisfy needs--whether their need is finding employment, locating decent and affordable housing, achieving freedom from addiction, or obtaining counseling regarding social issues associated with mental health and emotional growth.

Feeding The Homeless for Christ is a self-support auxiliary that obtains food and clothing to help homeless people. The ministry is dedicated to serving God through the spreading of the Good News of Jesus Christ and helping those who are less fortunate than us.

Prison Ministry

The Prison Ministry glorifies God by taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the incarcerated. We do this through intercessory prayer, letter writing, praise, worship, preaching and teaching the Word of God. We lift up the name of Jesus by exhibiting Christ in our character and in the pouring out of compassion for our brothers and sisters, who are institutionalized. In obedience to the command of Christ to go into all the world (Matthew 28:19), souls will be saved unto salvation and inmates will be encouraged to grow in the knowledge of the Father.

The mission of the Nursing Home Ministry is to cultivate, nurture and uplift the poor in spirit, brokenhearted and the lonely.
