At the heart of our service is a desire to remove the division between volunteers and our community. We encourage our volunteers to sit and break bread with our friends. We are cultivating an environment of hospitality where together as a family we take the time to share in life together. It is in these interactions where healing and restoration begin for the members in our community, as well as our volunteers.

There are many services to take part of in our ministry, please continue reading to learn more about the services we provide.

Upcoming Services

We are currently transitioning into our new home so please keep us in your prayers. God willing we will be moved into the new location by mid-October. Please reach out to us if you would like to be informed when our regular services resume. 

Here is a list of our upcoming services:

Food Truck Service – Free Meals on Wheels (Weekly – Saturdays)
Our weekly Saturday service is a true representation of the heart of our ministry. The Church is commanded to tend to those who are in need, homeless, at-risk, and brokenhearted. By the grace of God, we have been able to start a church with this mission— to love the poor. We encourage our volunteers to share in the meals with our friends and cultivate a sense of hospitality regardless of our location — in the church or on the street.  To participate in this service, all volunteers handling food will be required to have a Food Handler’s License – it can be acquired online for $15. Please reach out if you have any further questions regarding the service or license at (562) 674-0288.

Mira’s Boutique – (Weekly – Saturdays)
Mira’s boutique will be another mobile vehicle following our Food Truck ministry. Our mobile boutique will provide hygiene kits, undergarments and bibles to the friends we encounter. We are always looking for donations of hygiene products, socks, underwear, coats, reusable bags and blankets. Hygiene products needed are: shampoo, conditioner, soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, non-alcoholic mouthwash, small hand/face towels, female sanitary napkins or tampons, underwear, bras, and socks.

Health Clinic – (Once a month – Date TBD)
Our health clinic will be run by various health practitioners volunteering their time and services. We will also be able to provide items from Mira’s boutique to the visiting members of the clinic.
