GALVESTON STREET MINISTRY

Galveston Street Ministry offers time of praise & worship, a brief message, and a call to accept Jesus along with a hot breakfast and medical care to needy people at the corner of 20th and Winnie. Everyone comes expecting food, prayer and an encouraging message from the Lord.

There are many serving opportunities available so everyone can find some way to minister to the 200 indigent served every Saturday morning. Serving can include walking with individuals in the food lines, passing out drinks to those waiting in line for food or medical services, or visiting and praying with the people who show up.

If a small group wants to provide food, clothes, or other items (bibles, sanitary items, etc.) they are free to do so. All that needs to happen is the group arrive no later than 7:45 AM with a table to place their items on, put up the table at an open space around the perimeter of the parking lot, and wait until AFTER the service to begin distributing. People will gather around the table as soon as you begin setting up to see what you all have, but it is imperative that nothing we do take away from each Saturday’s worship and message. Once the message is finished, distribution can begin.

Items to bring: bibles, small bags of snacks, bottles of water, men’s shaving kits, toothbrush kits, seasonal clothes/jackets, new or gently used clothes (including socks, new men’s & women’s underwear), hats, blankets, individual sized sunscreen, hand sanitizer, dog food, women’s hygiene products, shoes—this is not an exhaustive list so feel free to add on.

THE BIRTHDAY JOB PROGRAM

We will host three parties this month in shelters we serve. May 18th, 20th & 27th. If you are interested in having your small group serve at any of these parties must complete a background check. It would be nice to have a small group reserve a date. You will make a major impact to these children in the shelters/group homes.

Every Birthday child is given their very own personalized pillow along with their gift. If a small group would like to take up a pillow collection that would be wonderful. We go through a lot every month.
