WHY JOURNEY NEEDS A BUILDING

Manna Ministries of Journey Church is in its 11th year of feeding the homeless in Riverside, body and soul, every Thursday, rain or shine.  Journey Bible Study is also held in the park, every Tuesday.  Currently a nearby church is graciously offering the use of their cooking, pantry, freezer, and refrigerator facilities, but this arrangement will soon end.  Journey has many donated kitchen items in storage, as well as clothes, hygiene items, sleeping bags, tents, toys, and books, all of which are stored in volunteer's houses, garages, and car trunks.


WITH A BUILDING, JOURNEY CAN OFFER:


   A center of worship, close to homeless areas and easily accessible by foot or bicycle.


  Relief from harsh weather:  In extreme heat, cold, or rain, a place to take a break.


  A kitchen.  To receive food benefits from Feeding America(previously Second Harvest), food storage and kitchen operations must meet strict guidelines.


  Storage.  A singular storage facility for food and related dining items, and a central location from which to distribute donated goods. 


  Resource center.  Where computer and internet access will aid in searches for housing and employment opportunities. 


  Central meeting place.  Mobile aid, such as medical and visual, as well as other churches and ministries, will distribute material goods and spiritual encouragement.
WHY WE NEED FUNDING

Most churches receive much of their financial support from within.
As most of our congregation sleep in the open and have few worldly possessions,
 we must seek funding elsewhere.


IN THIS WE SEE A CHURCH

We have recently found a property close enough to homeless areas with enough structure space to accommodate a kitchen, storage, sanctuary, and resource office.  Its owner is currently working with the City Of Riverside to refurbish the buildings to code, and is willing to lease it out for our specific purpose.
