Missions > Bartimaeus Homeless

"For I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited me in"

Matthew 25:35

 

Our Bartimaeus Homeless Ministry ministers to the needy and homeless by providing meals, sodas, sweets, gum, toiletries, gloves, socks, hats, scarves, clothing and personal ministry.  We meet in the parking lot behind the Family Partnership Center, located at 29 North Hamilton Street in Poughkeepsie every Tuesday at 6:00 pm and every Saturday at 1:00 pm.  We also partner with another ministry to feed over 200 people on the last Thursday of the month at 5:00 pm at the Family Partnership Center. We need donated cakes and cookies or individually wrapped snack cakes to distribute all month long. Our ministry includes sharing the Gospel, offering an opportunity to receive salvation, serving a meal and distributing much needed items to the people.

 

If you have a heart for the needy we welcome your participation in this ministry.  We always accept donations of full size toiletries such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, shaving cream, soap, washcloths, razors, lotion, facial tissues, Chap Stick, shampoo, conditioner, and feminine products, etc.  These items can be dropped off in our Ministry Resource Room located next to the Cafe.
