Citygate Ministries has a community vegetable and flower garden located on our campus @ 2nd and Jackson Street. From our community garden we are able to provide our community fresh vegetables year round. The heart of the ministry is to provide healthy free food such as fruits and vegetables to our community. Due to our flower garden and benches, it’s also a beautiful place to sit and read or pray. It takes a lot of work to keep the garden going and producing fresh food, so we are always looking for volunteers to come out and help.
The Homeless Ministry is open every Tuesday morning from 8 to 10am for adult homeless men and women. It is our mission to provide a safe and loving environment within a Christian atmosphere. Our facilities have hot clean showers with towels, toiletries, and clothing available. Homeless people may bring in one bag of laundry which will be washed by volunteers and returned to them by noon on Wednesday. A healthy meal is served to nearly 100 people every Tuesday morning.
Volunteers are an important part of the mission. We have three shifts of men and women who volunteer to do laundry, serve breakfast, or assist in other areas that are vital to a successful mission. Only requirement is a ready smile and a loving heart.
