The City

“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich”
(2 Corinthians 8:9).
As Christ has sacrificially served us, we are all called to serve our city, especially to show mercy and justice for the needy, poor, and hurting. View the list of organizations our church formally partners with, and consider volunteering to serve those in need.

Easter Outreach
COVID-19 has changed everything, including Easter Outreach. Many local food pantries are not able to accommodate people coming to their location to pick up food. They need people who are willing to deliver groceries to those who shouldn’t be leaving their homes. So, we are now looking for volunteers to immediately help sort food (small group of 3-5) and deliver food to seniors in need (without face to face contact). Please sign up below and we will be in contact about next steps and potential opportunities.
Please be aware that the city of Philadelphia government has asked the churches to serve in this way. For more information about Easter Outreach and to volunteer go to www.easteroutreach.org.
Safe Families For Children
SFFC, a faith based organization, is a ministry that seeks to support vulnerable families in crisis while they get back on their feet so that children are safe and families stay intact. Through a local network of support from volunteers who serve these families in various ways, the heart of this ministry is to show biblical hospitality through local churches to families in their own community.
