City Vibe on Friday Nights

with No Comments

Corban Students! Looking for a way to serve the community?

 

City Vibe is an organization that provides free meals to the homeless and those in need. Volunteers are welcome every Friday night from 5:30-7:00pm.

 

Volunteers are needed to help serve food, but most importantly, they are needed to visit with the guests. Serving food is just a means to showing them the love of Jesus and opening doors for the Gospel!

Please contact ASB Community Engagement Leadership if you want help getting connected! Meals are served @ West Salem United Methodist Church, and there is usually a group that goes every Friday night!
