The Deacons champion a church-wide effort to help hungry people in our church community and across the south and west sides of Chicago by serving meals quarterly. During the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, the Deacons ministry sponsored free Taco Wednesday to address food insecurity in the Roseland community and fed the frontline workers at Roseland Community Hospital.
In 2020, the Men’s Council collaborated with the Deacon’s Ministry to provide meals to frontline workers during the COVID pandemic.
The Green Team is partnering with the Deacons to provide Lunch with Love, a free grab & go lunch distributed from the church’s court way on the following Saturdays: January 23rd, February 6th & 27th, and March 13th & 27th. These meals are funded by a sub-award grant from Faith in Place funded through the Chicago Region Food System Fund.
