Serving on Sabbath
Volunteers from the First Seventh-day Adventist Church of Tulsa have been packing their cars with hot meals on Sabbath afternoons and offering food and friendship to some of Tulsa’s homeless individuals. They take the meals to locations where the homeless community gather—in camps, under bridges, etc. According to Brandi Bowen, one of the ministry leaders, volunteers want to serve those who are far from a shelter and may not have had a hot meal recently.
The homeless ministry volunteers are prayerfully considering ways to proceed with this outreach. One project they have scheduled is serving at the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless, which provides meals, clothing, showers, medical care, and more to homeless men, women, and children. Our volunteers are also planning to continue distributing food on two Sabbaths each month.
“This ministry has been such a blessing, not only to the ones we have served but to all the individuals who are serving as well!” said Ms. Bowen.
