We Wish You A Merry Christmas!

Luke 1:31-33

“And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.”

Schedule for the week of Thanksgiving

Over the last few weeks, we have been blessed to have different youth groups come and volunteer in our service.

Below: Volunteers from the St. Monica’s Church youth group. We had fun distributing food and preparing meals for the homeless.

Below: Youth from both St. Pope Kyrillos Church and the Eritrean Church working together to help our community.

Get Your Church Involved!

Group leaders, if you are interested in having your youth group (middle school and up) join our service, don’t hesitate to contact Mike Summers.

What’s Next?

We will be working with the city of Long Beach to help clean up McArthur Park. Service will begin after food distribution at Christ the Good Shepherd Food Pantry. We need all hands on deck to help beautify our community. Contact us if you’re interested in helping.

Giving Opportunities

Our operations depend on your generous financial donations. Would you consider us for your end-of-year giving? Your donations go towards maintaining our crucial services for our community. Thank you and God bless!


Overcoming Obstacles

Overcoming Obstacles is an award-winning curriculum that has proven to be effective in teaching kids of all ages critical life skills. Gabriella Magar is experienced in working with children and will lead the course for our middle-school kids beginning next year. The curriculum promises to help kids build confidence, problem-solve, resolve conflicts, and study effectively. Gabby’s knowledge of the Bible and love for working with kids will make this a fun and unique class that will equip them with the necessary tools for their future in Christ.

Servants Needed

Our vision for helping the community is expanding, which means more opportunities for you to help. If you, or someone you know, are interested in volunteering, please get in touch with us.
