Downtown Ministry to the Homeless

Dear Friends!

Please join us in sharing God's love with the folks on the street this Saturday at 11am! We will be ministering in the parking lot of St. George Orthodox Church in downtown Orlando.

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.' - Matt 25:35-36

Location: St. George is located at 24 N. Rosalind Ave. on the corner of Rosalind Ave and Wall St, right behind the Orlando Public Library where their drop off window is located. We will meet in the parking lot of St. George at 11am. We always meet on the 2nd and 4th Saturday’s of the month.

Setup Time: 10:30am (setup team usually arrives 10:15-10:30am)

Start Time: 11am (message, prayer, then serve food, clothes and toiletries)

*If you arrive early, please wait until the entire team is there before distributing any items. This will avoid any confusion with the homeless.

Parking: You can park in the parking lot of the church. There is no fee to park there. Please go to the 2nd driveway of the parking lot and park next to the storage building. If you park on the street you must pay the meter or you could get ticketed. Also, there is now free parking available in the lot adjacent to the church on the right (North) side as you are facing the front of St. George from Rosalind Av. To enter the lot, instead of turning left onto Wall St. continue on Rosalind Av. then turn left into the lot immediately after the church.
