We all have heard the names Harvey and Irma at this point. These two storms have certainly made names for themselves: both incredibly destructive, taking lives and disrupting many. Want to help? Assemble Flood Buckets & Hygiene Kits with us to send to Mission to North America's (MNA) Disaster Response Warehouse. MNA's Disaster Response Warehouse provides disaster relief by partnering with the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) to gather crucial resources for communities affected by these catastrophic events.
CITY CHURCH has run for Back on My Feet (BOMF), but are you interested in lacing up weekly and running with Back on My Feet? City Church is helping BOMF get their new team started in the Penn North/Sandtown-Winchester neighborhoods, a Baltimore community that has experienced unbelievable unemployment rates (21% vs. 4.3% national average), poverty (30.9% vs. 14.5% national average), homelessness (1/3 of homes are vacant), and incarceration (3,074 per 100,000 persons vs. 455 national average). Team up with other CITY CHURCH members as we run (or walk) with BOMF members of this running-based model that aims to restore member's confidence, strength, and self-esteem to better equip them to tackle the road ahead and move toward jobs, homes, and new lives.

We are all aware of Baltimore City's many areas of needs. Fortunately, there are a lot of organizations seeking to meet these needs, but hands are required to help their missions come to fruition. So why not help out the existing organizations instead of starting one more?

Hi City Kids Parents! There are lots of things to do in Baltimore over the summer with your kids, but my experience has been that living so close to the city, I never explore what options are available to me. Recently I spent some time looking up different activities and events in the city for young families! Here are just a few fun and inexpensive ideas that I found.
We often don't make a connection between our faith things like the well being of Baltimore's harbor. But the truth is, we have been given resources to be good stewards of them. The way we love and serve Christ is inherently tied to the way we take care of our environment! On Sunday, June 28 we heard from Elise Bruner of Blue Water Baltimore about the condition of Baltimore's harbor and some ways we can help improve it. Here's some more information about Blue Water Baltimore and ways to get involved.
This Sunday we studied the question, “What should I do when I am afraid?”
Teens in Baltimore face unique challenges, complicated by the fact that an overwhelming majority of them are growing up without fathers in their homes. Young Life in Baltimore City approaches ministry with a unique strategy to effectively minister to these young people. During the fall, Baltimore City Young Life hosts a couple of events per week with students. They want to provide snacks at both events so that kids can always leave with a full stomach.

The 29th Street Community Center has hired a group of youth workers to volunteer over the summer, many of them working their first job. They are in need of guidance. Particularly, a group of students are working to put together a Youth Edition of the Harwood Voice newsletter. There are a couple of volunteers that help out occasionally, but more coverage is needed. They need someone to sit with them, make sure they’re on task and assist them with the process of writing an article (i.e. research, editing, design, layout).
