Next Serving Opportunity:

Serve with NYC Relief | The Relief Bus (www.reliefbus.org) consists of two former school buses now customized into mobile resource centers to help the poor and homeless. Friendly faces serve up food and love demonstrating genuine care. This allows volunteers to discover other needs and then connect people to resources and faith-based programs which often transform lives and in many cases actually save lives.
The Relief Bus provides a first step to freedom and new life for those in great need. Volunteers from MBC help prepare the food and then go out on the Relief Bus to Newark, Harlem, and the Bronx on a regular basis – either monthly or more often.
MBC will serve on the Relief bus on the first Friday of the month. We welcome minors to serve but they must be accompanied by an adult.
Contact Dave Springer or text him at 908-331-0569 with any questions.
MBC’s guest speaker is Josiah Haken, VP for Outreach Operations for The Relief Bus. Josiah’s Sermon entitled A Seat at the Table is based on Luke 14:1-11.

Week after week, rain or shine, the Relief Bus throws a party on the sidewalk for anyone and everyone with a very simple message:
