To truly live out our "mission" as a church to connect God's passion to a hurting world, we know we must reach out to those who need help and encouragement.
It is our desire to reach out and give a "hand up" to the homeless, hurting, and downtrodden in our community. For several years, we partnered with Bridge Outreach to provide sleeping bags, tents, new boots, hats, gloves, food, transport for health care, etc. for the homeless. We have also worked as an extension of the Faith Hope Love Foundation to provide for basic needs to those who are struggling, as well as providing referral resources for many other needs. With God's help, we strive to give a hand UP not a handout.
But we are always looking for NEW ways to be His hand extended... so in 2018, we launched a partnership with Carlsbad Community of Hope and are providing a hot meal every Tuesday for the homeless and for anyone in our city who has no place to get a meal for the day.
So ... what is next for us? God only knows, we are going to keep praying and dreaming!
