Under-Resourced

 

Join us as we follow god's command to serve the poor, the widows, the migrants and the orphans

 

 

the poor: 

 

Care Closet

The Care Closet receives clothing, shoes and linen donations. The items are given to people in need who seek assistance at the Palmetto Bay campus on Monday and Thursday mornings, at local schools, community events, or other requests.

Volunteer Serving Opportunities:

Mondays and Thursdays, from 8:30 am-10:30 am, at the Palmetto Bay Campus, Care Closet volunteers needed to sort, fold and organize items, and receive visitors.

Donations needed:

All donations can be dropped inside the blue bins located at the CF Palmetto Bay Campus and in front of the care closet all week long.

For more information, contact Naim Erched.

 


Food Pantry

This ministry works to provide food to the under-resourced in our community. We do this through Farm Share, Publix, Feeding South Florida, food drives and donations. Some of the food received is given to participants of the Backpack Program, visitors to the Care Closet at Palmetto Bay on Mondays and Thursdays or other people in need that visit our church.

Homeless

When a person becomes homeless, the impact goes far beyond their health and self-esteem, affecting their ability to provide for their family. We want to bring hope, love and care to those in need in our community, together with Chapman Partnership and through personal missions projects.

Volunteer Serving Opportunities:

Volunteers will prepare and serve dinner to the homeless at Chapman Partnership in Downtown and Homestead. Volunteers can meet at the Christ Fellowship Palmetto Bay Campus at 2 PM to car pool to the location or meet us at 3 PM at Chapman Partnership

Backpack Program

Thousands of children in Miami go to sleep hungry each weekend. We’re committed to making a difference in their lives by providing them with backpacks of food each week. During holidays, participating families have the option to opt-in to receive a meal basket.

Backpack Program: When Thanksgiving time comes around, we will place an insert asking if the families would like to receive a free Thanksgiving basket. If so, they are asked to provide their information and send it back to the church. CF volunteers will then deliver the baskets, connect, and pray with families that willingly provide information. This will be the first of many opportunities for our church to connect and help families not just physically, but also spiritually.

Weekly volunteering would involve delivering food to schools on Thursday or Friday morning. This position includes some lifting, driving time, and the need to connect and love the administration of the school.

Monthly volunteering would be setting up packing party events. Every campus has the potential to host a backpack packing party every 6 weeks to replenish the number of bags on hand for the rest of the year.

Ministry Roles:
Backpack packing party leaders and volunteers, Food Purchasing, Drivers & Food pick-up, Storage Coordinators, Recruiters and vision casters, Volunteer Coordinators, Prayer Team
