Below are Liberti’s mercy and justice teams and partnerships; we’d love to help you connect with the serving opportunity that’s right for you. For information, questions, and help, email Vito Baldini.

Easter Outreach 2018
Thanks for Partnering!
One way that Liberti celebrates Easter is by partnering with churches, nonprofits, and organizations to distribute meals to some of the hungriest zip codes in the Philadelphia region, and provide clean water to people in South Sudan. Thanks to all those who gave, served, packed, and delivered meals with Easter Outreach this year! Through your help, we were able to meet our goals and distribute over 8000 meals in and around Philadelphia neighborhoods and give 1500 water filters to people in South Sudan! Check out easteroutreach.org to get a glimpse of how your generosity blessed this ministry this Easter!
Emmanuel - 17th & Sansom Sts., Every Saturday from 10:00 AM - 2:30PM. Liberti partners with First Baptist Church to reach out to our homeless friends and neighbors in Center City. We cook, serve and eat a meal together. We provide a reflection on a Scripture passage and seek to offer time to build relationships and relax in a safe environment.
Coordinated Homeless Outreach Center (CHOC) -
1001 Sterigere St., Building 9, Norristown, PA.
Sunday afternoons at 4:30pm on chosen Sundays roughly once per month.
Volunteers plan, organize and prepare a special feast with very nice dishes. They provide it to the residents, joining-in themselves in a family-type special meal celebration together where we meet and eat together as friends and equals.
Volunteers offer to pray with residents who sometimes request special prayer. Prayer cards are distributed at tables with pens. Residents are encouraged to write down their prayer requests. Filled-in cards are collected and used by the sponsoring home groups to pray through together. Some of the feasts are arranged to include many families with children helping to prepare and serve the food. (Families with children always are welcome.)
For more information, please contact Chuck Harper.
The Bethesda Project is a community of prayer, reflection, and action that responds to the call to serve the abandoned poor.
Support Children and Youth in Foster Care
When Philadelphia's children and youth cannot be safely maintained in their own homes, and no family members, friends, or neighbors are available to help, these young people often enter into foster care. Since 2013, the number of children and youth in Philadelphia's foster care system has risen from about 4100 to about 6100, more homes and more supports are desperately needed. Liberti Church can have a huge impact on the city's most vulnerable population. Email Timothy Hitchens to see if there's a way that you or your small group can help.
