We are faith-based street ministry to the homeless and food insecure in Tupelo that live under bridges and in trees.  It also can include people housed in Salvation Army. Our group meets on Monday nights at the Stone House to make hygiene kits. At this time, we are making 60 kits per week. Every Wednesday at noon, we meet with the homeless at the Wick building across the street from Salvation Army to hand out hygiene kits, clothing, shoes, snacks, water, and Christian literature.

Spiritual Gifts Inventory

Spiritual gifts are qualities given to Christian believers for the building up of the whole body of Christ. They are not given for personal gain, but for ministry in the world. Learning about the spiritual gifts we have, as well as helping our congregation learn about their gifts, can be useful when we pair it with opportunities to engage our community.
