Outreach programs

We are a small church but we try to have a big heart. We are currently in the process of developing a Mobile Soup Kitchen for North Brooklyn. This should be on our streets early in the new year.

Also, every week day we have a soup kitchen, and on Saturdays we have our Greenpoint Community Table. Get connected and come! Click here
