Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you. - Jeremiah 29:7
We love to share our time and resources! We have a volunteer run thrift store for our friends and neighbors in the Mission. Through the sale of gently used items at our 2nd Time Around Thrift Store, we are able to give back 100% of the proceeds to help those who are struggling in our church and community.
We are passionate about helping women and families who face unplanned pregnancy. Alpha Pregnancy Center gives complete support in order to make a life giving choice when faced with an unplanned pregnancy. They offer many resources that will help families make educated decisions to give children safe and loving homes.
We care about the next generation. At City Crossroads Ministries children and teens are provided with after-school programming, enrichment services, bible studies, healthy meals, and a safe haven from the turmoil of the streets. For over 30 years they have helped children and teens reach their full potential, offering a message of love by pointing them toward the ultimate source of hope, Jesus Christ.
We promote justice and racial reconciliation by helping people understand how to have a relationship with Jesus Christ. Nettie Pinell and her husband Daniel serve the marginalized people of East Oakland with their God given passions. Nettie ministers as a doula to underserved pregnant women and young mothers. Together, they desire to reconcile the races by leading them towards lasting transformation through having a relationship with Jesus Christ.
We believe in discipleship. At Teen Challenge, men ages 18 and up can enter a program that will allow them to live on site for a specified period of time. They will receive training, discipleship, and many resources that will help them function and succeed in society. They are encouraged to apply these learned biblical principles in order to continue their relationship with Jesus Christ when they complete the program.
We serve God by serving the broken at City Team Ministries. A variety of programs and resources are offered at City Team Ministries to help individuals and families overcome their struggles. Services such as a daily meal, temporary shelter, live-in recovery center, learning/career classes and free medical care, are several of the ways City Team provides assistance.
