We’re always looking for volunteers to help out at our Sunday Coffee Hour, ushering during services and at our many partner organization events. For more opportunities, visit the Community Calendar.
Join us on Saturday, November 11th as we again assist the Bowery Mission food truck. We’ll arrive at Tompkins Square Park at 8:00 a.m. and report to Spencer Gaynes. Volunteers will help unload the truck, set up for food pantry and hot food service, serve hot soup, distribute groceries, and pray with those who request it. We’ll be finished by 10:00 a.m. For more information and to sign up, please contact Adom Crew, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join us at Coffee Hour after the 11:00 a.m. service on Sunday, November 5th. We’ll make sandwiches for the Ecclesia Ministries service in Madison Square Park. Rev. Susan Sparks will be preaching at the Ecclesia service. Ecclesia ministers to New York City’s homeless population each Sunday.
MABC Drive to collect hygiene supplies and toiletries – Working with Metro Baptist Church and New Alternatives for LGBT Homeless Youth, MABC will begin collecting supplies, including: toothbrushes and toothpaste, shampoo, brushes and combs, deoderant, soap, feminine hygiene products, q-tips, as well as new and gently used towels. Donated items can be left in the box at the rear of the sanctuary. Items will provide LGBTQ homeless youth with the essential items they need for self-care.

New Alternatives for LGBT Youth, an organization MABC partnered with earlier in the year for a soup kitchen ministry, has asked for volunteers in writing letters to some of their incarcerated clients. These at-risk individuals often become isolated and vulnerable in jail and this communication helps provide them with support along their journey. If anyone is interested in participating, please email Adom Crew at email@example.com for more information.
Every Tuesday morning from 6:45 to 8:30 a.m., St. Peter’s Church in midtown Manhattan (619 Lexington Ave. @ 54th St.) runs a soup kitchen. They are always looking for volunteers to help out and would welcome members our MABC family with open arms. If anyone is interested in participating, please contact Adom Crew, who participates in this ministry weekly. For additional details, firstname.lastname@example.org.
