Homeless - In Love, Word & Deed
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. As part of our effort to eliminate homelessness before Christ’s return, we treat them with love and dignity that Jesus demonstrated while He was on earth.
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.
You, your small group, or your family, can be a part of making a difference in the life of someone in need.
- most importantly, pray for us!
- make meals
- come out with us to deliver clothing, lunches, Bibles, LOVE...
- donate clothing or food items (see list of needs)
Volunteer at a scheduled "Saturday
Outreach". Take part in sharing Christ's love and The Gospel, assisting with clothing, bedding, hygiene, misc. items, bagged meals, hot meals, manicures, feet washing, bingo, prayer and fellowship are some of the opportunities you'll have during these events. All of these large outreaches are held at First Baptist Church. 1021 Hennepin Ave., Mpls, on a Saturday
. Please contact Staci Kuhl for upcoming dates.Skuhl@ilwd.org
Coordinate donation drives with friends, family or at work. Drives might include a hygiene drive, a sock drive, a shoe drive, a winter outerwear drive, a boot drive or a blanket drive. A $5 gift card drive from CVS or Subway is another idea as the ministry uses these to give to the winners of bingo during the Saturday outreaches.
Take part in the ongoing weekly bible studies and small groups. For days and times, please contact Greg Kuhl at Gkuhl@ilwd.org or 763.954.0655

A Horse Women's Surprise
I had In Love Word and Deed on my calendar for several months before it came. Our small group leader had sent out several dates a while back so we could let him know which one would work for us. Without giving it much thought, I picked one. We were... More
