“I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40
We endeavor to assist the Pastor and/or Missions and Outreach Coordinator in the faithful service of advancing and promoting the love of Christ through Missions and Outreach by providing objective advice that ensure passionate, compassionate, effective and efficient stewardship of the resources of FBCSH.
Every Thursday (except the first Thursday of the month) bags of food are distributed to individuals and families that are in need. The food pantry distributes food between the hours of 12:00pm and 3:00pm. Currently an average of 400 families are served each week.
Every Monday @ 6:30am a group of trained volunteers gather to pray and minister to homeless individuals and families living in their vehicles. Breakfast sandwiches, water, juice, fruit and other food items along with resource information are distributed at this time.
DINNERS WITH A MISSION:
Union Mission Ministries: Several times a year volunteers prepare delicious meals that are served displaying the love of Christ to homeless men, women and children. We express the love and mission of FBCSH to each individual, allowing them to know that no matter what their life circumstances maybe Jesus loves them.
Heron’s Landing Apartments: Heron’s Landing is an apartment complex for formerly homeless single men and women. Quarterly trained volunteers of FBCSH prepare and serve homemade meals to the residents. Several times during the year food bags, toiletries, and laundry products are also donated to the residents.
