Upcoming special event:
December 9th, 2023 outreach
Saturday, December 9th, we will be partnering with Lifting Spirits Higher again to prepare and serve a hot meal to some of our community, as well as send them off with a meal to-go. You can learn more about that event and how to sign up here.
Grace Sacramento is partnering with two Christian ministries serving the homeless every weekend on the corner of 13th and C Street in downtown Sacramento.
One is a shower ministry called Mercy Holistic Ministry (9-12p) that provides approximately 60 showers to homeless men and women every Saturday and Sunday through a two-shower trailer.
The other is a meals ministry (called Lifting Spirits Higher) that provides a hot meal, a warm cup of coffee or hot chocolate and packaged foods to approximately 100 people every Saturday (10a-12p). Together, these ministries serve to be an encouragement, share the joy, and give the love and hope of Christ to those on the streets.
We encourage you to check it out and see for yourself what God is doing in these ministries in downtown or click the button below to sign-up to volunteer.
How can we (our church) respond?
- Pray for both of these ministries (Mercy Holistic Ministry/Lifting Spirits Higher) and for God’s guidance as you consider this opportunity to serve Him.
- Serve the homeless on 13th/C Street (first-timers feel free to just come to observe) to volunteer: for the shower or meals ministries.
- Join a team to prepare a lunch/side dish to serve (10a) on Saturday morning
- Donate clothing (particularly men's) for cold-weather
- Provide financial support by giving through our Mercy and Care fund
If interested in any of these ways or have further questions or would love to participate in some/any capacity, email Martha.
