“Caring Hands” Ministry Serves Homeless of Fort Wayne

homelessserviceslide copy
Aboite Lutheran Church supports “The Caring Hands Ministry,” a Christ-centered ministry that serves the homeless of Fort Wayne each Sunday morning – with a worship service and a meal. This ministry gathers at Freimann Square when the weather is warm or at the Rescue Mission during inclement weather. Once a month, ALC participates by gathering at the church at 7:30am to prepare brown-bag lunches and deliver them downtown. Directly following the homeless worship service, we serve a hot meal and distribute the packed lunches. Volunteers return to Aboite by around 9:30am.

We are also collecting items for the Caring Hands Ministry to hand out to the homeless. There is a large white box labeled “homeless ministry” at both entrances of ALC.

List of needed items:

Blankets
Rain Ponchos
Socks/Underwear
Gloves/hats winter jackets
Garbage bags
Flashlights
Toothbrush/Toothpaste
Energy Bars
Candles and matches

The next serving event will be Sunday, April 27th 2014 at 7:30am

Please contact Tama if you are interested in helping in any way at tama@aboitechurch.org or 260-436-5673 ext. 105.

Prayer Warriors Wanted

Prayer-Ministry-logo-2PNG1Congregation Prayer Chain Ministry teams are now being formed. We are looking for people who are willing to spend some time each week praying for the needs of our congregation and the community at large. A chain “Captain” will receive a prayer request from either the church staff, or any member of our congregation, to mobilize the chain. That individual will CALL or TEXT the next person on their list who will pray for the request and pass it on and so forth.

This Prayer Ministry is vital to the spiritual and emotional health of our congregation as we continue to grow and reach out to others in Jesus’s name. This ministry will also help alert the Pastors and staff as well as the newly formed “Care Ministry” as to “special circumstances” of those in need of more than prayer at any given time.
Please prayerfully consider being part of a “Prayer Chain Team” and visit the Ministry/Events Kiosk for more information.
