Brooklyn Seventh-day Adventist Church Community Services

Warm greetings from the Community Services Department!  Jesus reminds us in Matthew 25:40: “Inasmuch as you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”   

Our mission is to first and foremost, reflect the character of God.  And in so doing, we seek to follow in the footsteps of Christ, using his earthly ministry as our guide. 

As Christ met the needs of His community, we believe it is also our mission to address the physical, financial, and emotional issues affecting people today. 

As such, the Community Services Department has undertaken a variety of ministries, each with the intent of displaying the love of Christ through service.  Through the distribution of bread, fresh fruits, vegetables and other essentials, in addition to toys for neighborhood children, we are determined to help everyone regardless of race, religion or creed.

As we share these goods with the community, we believe we share with them that the love of Jesus is nourishing, enriching, and healing.   Jesus’ example of feeding the multitude, spiritually and physically, is what we strive to emulate.

       Please e-mail me and let us know how we can be of further assistance. 

      Elder Albert Hutchinson, Community Services Leader

Community Services Ministry Food Distribution Schedule

BREAD

At Brooklyn Seventh-day Adventist Church our Bread Ministry is a vital part of our community service.  On Sabbath evenings, fresh bread is offered to the immediate community and also to our church members.  On Sunday mornings, between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm, fresh bread is distributed at two outposts: 4015 Church Avenue and also, the corner of Ocean Avenue and Avenue O in Brooklyn.

God has been blessing this ministry.  Community members are not only given the physical food but tracts and literatures are given to enrich their spiritual lives.  As we share our faith, please pray that God's Holy Spirit will impress lives as we offer them His Word, the bread of Life.

FOOD

Our Free Food Distribution program takes place every Thursday evening from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm at 4015 Church Avenue.

This effort shows that the church is not only concerned about the spiritual needs of the community but has a great interest in their physical well-being.  Jesus' admonition for us to show kindness to "the least of the brethren" is our guide in this outreach venture.  May God continue to bless hearts and lives as they learn more of God who gave His Son to offer unto us eternal life.  

TOYS

In December 2007, the church began its first annual toys distribution program.  We presented scores of toys to gleeful neighborhood children.   The Community Service Department wishes to thank the Brooklyn Borough President’s office and other faithful donors for their immense generosity.

Please pray that our mission of bringing joy and gladness to every heart is realized, as we continue to make our presence felt in the community.
