Paterson Homeless Outreach (Ongoing)

Be part of a team showing love and bringing hope to our homeless friends in Paterson! We teamed up with City Impact to give out food, pray with folks, and spend time with some precious people who need to know they are seen and valued by God. We meet monthly at The Chapel at 8:30am to carpool, or go directly to 39 McBride Ave. in Paterson at 9:00am. Outreach ends at 12:30pm. Team size is limited, so be sure to reserve your spot.

Saturday Serve Days (Monthly)

Servants Heart Ministry provides top-level construction labor at zero cost to local churches and Christ-centered nonprofit organizations. This is largely made possible by volunteers serving each week. Saturday Serve Days allow volunteers to serve with their hands and bring energy to our sites to show people what King Jesus’ Kingdom looks like, and who King Jesus is. Whatever your skill level you bring, there is a place for you on our project sites.
We’ll meet onsite at 8:30am, share coffee and lunch together (provided), and head home around 4:30pm. No previously learned skills are necessary. Tools will be provided.

When: First Saturday of every month
How: Email, and let him know you’re interested!
