Every Saturday, at 6:00 p.m., people gather to participate in Church Under the Bridge. Part ministry, part food, part fellowship, it is an event that nourishes mind, body, and soul. And to think, they do their great work at 300 Spring Garden Street in the absence of a building. The only protection from the elements is the road that looms above. The service is an outreach for the homeless, yet, all are are welcome. Faith Wesleyan Church runs the event that, on some evenings, attracts over 250 people.
This is the time of year when warm clothing is much appreciated. This is also the time of year when people are in the spirit of giving. If you are able, here is the ministry's wish list. They do so much good for the homeless community and they greatly need items like gas cards, batteries and flashlights, non-perishable food, baggies and storage containers and so much more. They can usually use people to help serve food and to distribute items. Always, they need people who like to sing and celebrate getting their soul nourished. If there is a service next Saturday, it will be on Christmas Eve. Imagine the difference you could make by giving of your time to people who are without a home on Christmas Eve, which also happens to be their first day of Hanukkah.
