Serving our East Bay family

Our goal is to expand the consciousness of love and unity through prayer, direct support and service. In the past year, we were blessed to create many opportunities to provide service.

Participate in the church community outreach program and you can help with fun and fulfilling programs like these that we are so proud of:

We gave out Easter Baskets to the Mom’s re-entry program.

We hosted a Back to School Drive which provided back packs and school supplies to over 20 children in the Oakland area.

We fed over 250 people through our annual Thanksgiving Celebration and food drive. Families came from the EBCRS congregation, The Laney College CARES Program and the Santa Rita MOMs Program.

We adopted 50 families with multiple children for the Christmas Holiday and provided toys, food, clothing, warm coats, and SOM educational information for the parents.

We supported a Community Coat Drive with FACES of the East Bay which provided coats to multiple shelters in the Oakland area.

Each year it is our goal to increase the number of families we serve. Would you like to be a part of this movement? We are seeking motivated individuals who are interested in securing donations, preparing gift bags, and creating partnerships within our community.

If you like to volunteer your time or donate to this effort, please contact Ona Afrae at 510.472.6932 or send an email to ona_afrae@yahoo.com.

Thank you for your willingness and interest in service. We appreciate you. We love you. We are Thankful to God for you!
