Homeless Outreach to Santa Ana
| We have a new local outreach ministry. It was started by a small group that wanted to reach out to the homeless community in Santa Ana. Their goal is simple, to use a sack lunch to share God's love with people in need. As it continues to grow, and they need our help. Every Sunday you can come help make sandwiches, assemble lunches, and your kids can color the bags with encouraging notes or Bible verses. The tables to help pack lunches will be in the courtyard area between the 1st and 2nd service every Sunday. It's a simple way to serve and will only take 15-20 minutes. Another way to help would be to donate Peanut Butter, Jelly, Bread, Chips or Snack Bars. For more information contact Randy Frans 949 firstname.lastname@example.org or Phil Dunn 858 email@example.com.
| This outreach is to incarcerated and at-risk youth in Orange County with Protestant Chaplaincy Ministry. Orangewood Children’s Home and Juvenile Hall are two of the ministries we help! Please contact David Nusz to find out when the next training session is being held at the Orange County Juvenile Hall, 331 The City Drive, South Orange.
Additional opportunities to serve that do not require extensive training are: Weekly Bible studies on Monday evenings between 6-7:30 and also conduct church services at Juvenile Hall and Youth Guidance Center every 2nd Sunday of the month. We start at 7:30 and finish 2nd location at 11:30. We only need one week advance notice so a temporary clearance can be arranged. It is a great way to expose yourself to the ministry and see if it is a good fit before embarking on the process of becoming a regular volunteer.
Any questions about the ministry can be directed to David Nusz

Mentor Me Ministry "Leading Christian men to share Christ's love with Fatherless boys!”
| Mentor ME Ministries Inc., is a 501(c)(3) Religious Non-profit organization, designed to provide Christian men to mentor Fatherless boys that range in ages from 5 years to mid teens. These boys never or rarely see their dads! They are “fatherless” due to their dads being deceased, restrained as abusers, imprisoned, divorcing or never having married their moms, leaving their sons at birth, living out of state or country and other abandonment issues. The boys are desperate for father-figures and role models in their lives. It is this need that our mentors are dedicated to fulfilling.
We share Christ's love with Fatherless boys by spending time with them during group mentoring events and activities. These group events give the boys an opportunity to bond with their mentors, while having fun and learning. All of our activities include prayer and Bible study. In this way, we can give the boys a solid foundation and lead them in a close relationship with the Lord. Our screening process for mentors includes fingerprinting and background checks.
To get involved today, contact Andy Schiller email@example.com
or Andy at (949) 510-5257.
