Street outreach is one of the hallmarks of The Healing Place. Several times throughout the week our ministry team hits the streets of Jackson to meet the homeless and those in need where they are and offer them spiritual and tangible assistance.
On Saturdays and Sundays, we carry various combinations of sandwiches, juice boxes, snacks, socks, and toiletry kits to offer to people. Other days, we simply offer conversation and a pastoral presence. Communion and prayer are always available to those who request it. Because our routes are the same each week, our ministers and congregants know when and where to find each other.
Our program of street outreach has a simple agenda: we want to meet homeless and sheltered men and women exactly they are – physically, emotionally, and spiritually – and offer them whatever support we can.
Tuesdays, 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. Saturdays, 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. Sundays, 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.
