"Behold, I stand at the door and knock..." - Revelation 3:20
As the Power Castle Ministry Team has ministered in low-income areas of our city, we have identified the physical needs of the children and families we reach. One very evident need has been that of an after-school feeding program. After each Sidewalk Sunday School Program, a sack lunch is provided for each child and anyone else who needs a meal. This program began by faith and with little resources, but has grown into providing thousands of meals each year to needy children and families.
"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat." - Matthew 25:35 NIV
Another effective outreach of Power Castle Ministries is our bus ministry. Many of the children who live in the neighborhoods we reach are more isolated from youth programs and outdoor activities. Special field trips are planned for the children who attend our sidewalk programs. Children are bused to places such as city parks for activities that include picnics, relay races and kids worship. Our long term goal is to expand this outreach by obtaining acreage in the area to develop a children's day camp. The purpose of the day camp would be to provide a safe, nurturing environment where children can further grow in their faith.
"Go out into the highways and hedges, land compel them to come in, that my house may be filled." - Luke 14:23 NIV
