Sharing love with the homeless and those looking for hope.
That's the mission of Rooftop Church's Homeless Outreach. We want to bring dignity and compassion to people in St. Louis who have found themselves without a home and hope. Join the mission every other Monday. We distribute clothing, personal items, food and prayers. Our focus is on building relationships and helping our homeless friends on their faith journey.
Rooftopper Amy Ahearn is among those who have built relationships as part of this homeless outreach.
"I've always had a passion to help people. When I heard about the opportunity to serve the homeless in our neighborhood/city, I jumped on board. Initially, I thought that we would bring them food and clothes and that would be the extent of it. I never could have imagined how amazing an experience I would have, and continue to experience every time we visit, and as Justin says "love on" our new friends. And they are our new friends. They are wonderful people who have fallen on hard times.
Rooftop's Outreach Team meets, at minimum, twice a month on a Monday nights. In addition to that, we connect with our homeless friends on Sunday mornings by bringing those that are interested to Rooftop for service. Stayed tuned for some exciting updates this fall- God is doing some really awesome things in the lives of our homeless friends!
