Serving Veteran's

Veteran's Fellowship Groups
Veteran's Fellowship Groups meet weekly to discuss life experiences, veterans' topics and to have Bible study. We provide one another with hope, encouragement and comradery through Jesus Christ. Call for location updates during holidays or if you are coming for the first time and have not signed up to receive "text reminders".

Donations for Care Packages

Donations are assembled into care packages for the 80 veterans receiving care at the VA Long Beach Medical Center's "spinal ward".

  • Cards/notes of gratitude addressed "Dear Veteran". Most cards are home made with patriotic artwork or just simple handwritten notes of gratitude. It's a great project to do with your small group, children's groups or school classes, neighbors and family. The letters and cards are the most important and most needed items.
