In Love, Word and Deed is...
a ministry dedicated to sharing the Gospel and providing donated food and clothing to the poor and homeless in the Twin Cities area.
1 John 3:17-18 - But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.
Our mission is to go to the impoverished and broken-hearted people so we may, through the power of the Holy Spirit, help provide for their physical needs and tell them about the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We treat them with love and dignity that Jesus demonstrated while He was on earth. We seek to create a safe community where they are among peers as they learn the truth about Jesus Christ.
Deu. 15:11 - For there will never cease to be poor in the land. Therefore I command you, ‘You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land.’
What We Do
We collect and organize donated clothing and food so it can be distributed directly to the homeless.
We bring donated items to the homeless. We try hard to match up needs with what we have available. It's not uncommon for someone to ask for a coat and if we don't have it, we will find it.
We often provide bag lunches and meals. We will partner with area churches and use their kitchens to organize and prepare meals.
Each and every homeless friend we serve deserves and needs prayer. We are available for prayer on a moments notice. We also collect prayer requests weekly and distribute them to a prayer team.
Teach the Truth
We are a Christian organization and we admonish people toward the Truth of Jesus Christ. We host a weekly Bible Study and encourage all attenders to find a church home.
Being homeless is a difficult experience, we seek to create a safe community for homeless to build relationships and grow in Christ. We are a family, we tell our friends that every week.
