The Emmanuel Community Outreach Ministry at First Baptist shares a heart-felt interest in our community for our brothers and sisters who are in the homeless population in the heart of downtown center city.
We currently have 45 to 50 participants attending the program every Saturday. We offer devotional time, a time to give thanks, and a safe environment for expressing special need and requests. We provide a cooked meal, movie time, and much-needed relaxation time away from some of the needs and hardships that this community faces daily. We attempt to give our friends and guests the reassurance that comes with belonging to a larger community through the open door of God’s House.
The Emmanuel ministries need your support, prayer, contributions and volunteer efforts in this mission of friendship and charity. Please click on this link if you wish to be involved in this invaluable outreach to the community.
