Reid Temple AME Church has always been focused on reaching and serving the lost “By Faith”. One of the main goals our leadership had at the launch of Reid Temple DC was to “Reach DC” by bringing Jesus Christ's love and compassion to the city! Since the launch of Reid Temple DC in April of 2015 we have not only brought a different and powerful worship experience to the city but we have also served various populations in the city from the indigent, to veterans, to college students, to families in need and more. However, there is more work/service to be done.
Washington DC has high number of homeless parents and students. While Reid Temple DC will Reach the city in many areas, homelessness will be one of our chief focal points, as we commit to impacting the lives of 5,000 homeless people in the District. We plan to achieve our goal by hosting several “brown bag” lunch days- where we provide a bag lunch for a few hundred homeless people. The bags will also include other needed supplies such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, socks, hand warmers during the winter, and other items. Reid Temple DC is also seeking partnerships with local organizations who are focused on homelessness and helping our brothers and sisters move into a sustainable way of life; this includes homes of their own, jobs, and a way to contribute back to society.
