The Parking Lot Mission is a ministry that serves a diverse population of people in many ways. Although participants are served a hot meal every Saturday morning, we only ask Cornerstone Journey Groups to volunteer at the PLM on the fourth Saturday of every month. Journey Groups are also encouraged to distribute various items such as canned, boxed and fresh food, clothing, and personal toiletry items. Most of the people coming to the PLM are struggling financially and many are unable to work because of health issues (mental, physical disability, chronic illness). Others try to work through day labor but are often unsuccessful. There are several single mothers who participate, and a number of senior citizens who are unable to work any longer given their health and educational status. Participants come from a variety of faith backgrounds, some having no apparent relationship with Christ, while others display a strong faith in Him. By your Journey Group’s participation in this important ministry, those in need will receive a hot meal, a friendly smile and a glimpse of Christ’s love.
