Today's Charge

Keep back nothing. Nothing that you have not given away will be really yours. Nothing in you that has not died will ever be raised from the dead. Look for yourself, and you will find in the long run only hatred, loneliness, despair, rage, ruin, and decay. But look for Christ and you will find Him, and with Him everything else thrown in.

- C.S. Lewis, from Mere Christianity

Program of Hope: Homeless Ministry

Program of Hope, one of SCAPC’s Community Ministry Partners, serves the homeless and those living on the margins of society in New Orleans. Each Wednesday, the sanctuary doors at First Presbyterian Church on Claiborne Avenue are opened at 9:00 and our friends and neighbors are welcomed in for a cup of coffee, a muffin, a devotional service, and friendly words before practical services are offered.

We supply toiletries, sack lunches, bus passes, and vouchers for a night at the Salvation Army Shelter. Social work interns from the Broadmoor Improvement Association are available to help our clients navigate the many issues that may arise while they are regaining their footing.

We are excited to being offering clean, gently used seasonal clothing. Donation needs include sturdy shoes, men’s and women’s white shirts, blouses and black pants for work, casual jeans, pants, t-shirts and other tops, as well as new underwear and socks. A collection basket can be found in Frampton Fellowship Hall now through May 15. Another drive will be held in the fall. Please do not leave items at other times.

SCAPC participates in this ministry along with three local Presbyterian churches. Our turn to serve is in May. If you would like to pack and serve lunches from 8:45-10:30 on Wednesdays during May, please contact Jane Rasi by text or email at janerasi@gmail.com or 713-454-3974.
