Serve Beyond the Church
Southminster members are committed to partnering with local and state organizations to end homelessness, address food insecurity, and care for our neighbors. We serve through hands-on volunteering and generous financial giving.
We partner with GBM to provide food, clothing and financial assistance to those facing crisis. Non-perishable items for the food pantry are collected at Southminster every Sunday, and we contribute Christmas gifts and bicycles for children each Christmas.
Through Firehouse Ministries, we support shelter and other services for men facing homelessness. As part of our partnership, we serve dinner at Firehouse about six times each year.
Serving the whole state of Alabama, PHC helps homeless families and teens find safe shelter and make the transition into more sustainable housing situations. Southminster serves as a drop off location for PHC’s thrift store on the first Saturday of each month.
Café Justo is a grower-owned coffee cooperative based in southern Chiapas, Mexico, formed to address poverty and migration from Mexico to the U.S.A. We proudly serve Café Justo at our church events and invite our community to buy from Café Justo to serve at home.
