MABC is now officially a sponsoring congregation for Ecclesia Ministries which ministers to the poor and marginalized in public spaces throughout NYC through worship services and lunches. Our church will be responsible for the fifth Sundays during the year. Rev. Susan Sparks will preach and our congregation led by our Community Ministries Board will prepare lunches for each of these worship services. We are honored to be a part of this important ministry for New York City!
Please note: During this time of pandemic, our volunteer effort with the Ecclesia lunch program has been suspended.

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.
