Collect and Deliver Firewood

While many enjoy the privilege of heated homes, for some winter can be a brutal affair. In the mountains, severe weather conditions may cut out electricity and wood becomes the only source of heat. By collecting and delivering firewood to low income areas or the elderly, you can provide warmth to the body and soul of the needy.

Gleaning Crops to Feed the Hungry

"When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest... Leave them for the poor, the fatherless and the widow, so that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hands." (Lev 19:9 and Deut 24:19)

Deliver Lunches to the Homeless

According to the United Nations, there are at least 100 million homeless in the world today. But no matter where we are, the Bible has multiple mandates on helping the poor and hungry, and one effective way is to provide packaged meals to the homeless. Delivering a lunch may not solve homelessness, but it lets our neighbors on the streets know that they are loved and not forgotten.

Food Pantry Outreach

It is disheartening when a family struggles to put food on the table or worries about from where the next meal will come. Whether it is single parents with hungry children, breadwinners who have lost their jobs, parents who work for a minimum wage, or families with sudden hardships, you and your church can help give them a glimpse of hope by meeting a basic need: food.

Job Training

With soaring unemployment rates in the country, it is more important than ever to minister to job seekers. As we strive to meet the physical needs of those facing a financial crisis, we need to remember to minister to the spiritual and emotional needs as well. A career support group in your church will allow participants to encourage, comfort, and assist one another during tough times.

Garden Ministry

While it helps greatly to seek donations for food or to glean from crops, having a home or community garden is a fun and cost-effective way to get fresh, healthy food. You may start a family garden ministry at your church, or use available land to provide a community garden.

Assemble Hygiene Kits

Hygiene kits are a perfect way to bless a group of people at a local organization or in a distant land. Local organizations like homeless shelters, hospices, battered women’s shelters, nursing homes, local colleges/universities or rescue missions are great places to touch many lives with a small gift of a hygiene kit. Additionally, hygiene kits can be given to disaster relief efforts or mailed in bulk overseas.
