Care Ministry TEam
If you would like to share in the ministry of the Care Ministry Team, please contact the church office.
Starting in January 2021, we need volunteers to deliver bread to Youth for Christ and/or Teen Challenge on Weeks 1, 2, 4 and 5 of each month. If you are able to help deliver bread once a month to Youth for Christ and/or Teen Challenge, please inform the Church Office.
We also have openings for volunteers to deliver bread once a month to individuals and families on designated routes in Abbotsford. It does not take much of your time on a Sunday. For more information, please contact the Church Office.
The Bread Ministry is an opportunity for the Heritage Alliance congregation to volunteer and help pack and/or deliver bread to needy individuals. Each Saturday evening, Heritage volunteers pick up the donated bread, and pack it at the church. On Sundays, after church, Heritage volunteers deliver bread to low-income families, seniors, singles, and at-risk teens who live in the Abbotsford area. The volunteers give of their time usually once a month, or more frequently, depending on their interest in being involved with the Bread Ministry.
It is an opportunity for you to give back to the Abbotsford community, and to help vulnerable individuals who for various reasons, do not have enough money to make ends meet, and are scraping together a living.
“I had no bread left when the delivery came. It was much needed.” – Marlene (senior)
“I use all the bread and buns to help stretch our meals.” – Lisa (family of 7 people)
“For the bread of God is the bread that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” “Sir," they said, "always give us this bread." Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”
If you would like to join our Bread Ministry teams to pack and/or deliver bread to those in need, please contact the Church Office.
