Twice each week we open our ministry center for a light snack and coffee. It is a place for people to meet others, play games, and hear about Jesus. People also have an opportunity to learn Greek and participate in Bible studies.
We also rent a center we call the “Sfina.” Once a week we invite the neighborhood kids to come and play games, use the internet and also hear the word of God. Once a week our church youth meet to study God’s word, play games, and fellowship.
Hosting community service projects provides ways to clean the pedestrian streets, parks, and playgrounds, and pass out devotional calendars to shop owners.
Finally, we distribute a care package to 10 families in our community each month. The package contains food staples and hygiene supplies. We visit the families in their homes to distribute these packages which allow us to build relationships.
