Christ's Carpenters

Diocese wide Food/clothes drive and FTFT! Service Day!

A diocese-wide service initiative will be started from today. Each church will place a box in the church to collect canned food, clothes and toiletries.

Contact the FTFT! Delegates from your individual church for details.
Then, on September 26th we will go out as o1ne unit and distribute the items we collected to local shelters and soup kitchens in our communities. (each church will go to a shelter nearest to it)

We will then all meet afterwards for prayer and fellowship and share the joy we experienced in this day!

we will be meeting at 5 pm in Archanel Michael and St. Mena's Church in Staten Island, NY.

The most important things for now are the following:
1) place a large donation box somewhere in your church
2) announce to your church to bring in the desired items (canned food, clothes, toiletries) encourage sunday school children to donate items so they can learn the joy of giving and service!

*if you would like to participate in this service day and your church is too far away to join us for our post-service meeting, PLEASE feel free to just go ahead and serve! We encourage you to spend the next two months collecting those items with your church and go out and distribute them on september 26th(or another day if you need to)

Christ's Carpenters

"Unless the LORD builds the house, they labor in vain who build it;" (Psalm 127:1)
"For You have been a shelter for me, a strong tower from the enemy." (Psalm 61:3)

As David the Psalmist so beautifully sang, it is God who shelters us. It is He who provides for our safety and security.We were commanded by Christ to take in strangers with no place to stay.

It is Christ’s Carpenters mission to assist in the establishment of housing for the misplaced, the strangers, the poor and the lost. We do so by physically contributing in the creation of homes, hospitals and churches.

We visit neighborhoods that need maintenance and cleanup.  We visit homeless shelters and assist them in serving their residents. We are the hammers and the brooms in God's hands; we hammer the nails in need of hammering, and sweep the floors in need of sweeping. We aim to provide people a place where they can safely live, pray, and give thanks to the Lord for His goodness and His mercy.

We work with the United Way, Habitat for Humanity, and various other groups.
