OUTREACH - ASSISTANCE TO THE MATERIALLY POOR: SPECIAL EVENTS

The Mission hosts several special events each year including block parties, a Thanksgiving party, and a Christmas party.  

ThanksgivingTHANKSGIVING PARTY

Beginning with a prayer service in the church, our Thanksgiving party provides neighborhood families with a delicious brunch and all of the groceries needed to prepare their own Thanksgiving dinner in their homes. Each year we serve brunch for about 550 people and give away around 150 Thanksgiving dinners, complete with a turkey and all the necessary trimmings.

Our Christmas Party also begins with a prayer service and then provides lunch and Christmas gifts for hundreds of our neighbors. We typically serve lunch for around 1300 people lunch and give away at least 5000 gifts each year! Many of our neighborhood children would not receive any new gifts for Christmas were it not for our party and the generosity of so many who partner with us to make it all possible.  Click to see the 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, and 2013 Christmas Party picture pages.
