To meet people’s immediate needs through social services such as tutoring and mentoring programs, health screening education and assistance, inner city missions, and disaster response.

The Ottawa Adventist Community Services Ministry seeks to be a well-rounded ministry of compassion, which supports Personal Ministries by providing for the poor, needy and unfortunate of the community (both in-reach and our-reach programs).

Key Objectives: 
  1. To prepare, educate and enlist church members and service providers.
  2. To assess the needs of the community.
  3. To meet the needs of the community by providing programs and services that impact the church and the community, including: Touch-of-Love sack lunches, Community Guest Day, Bread Baskets and more.

Community Services Needs You!
The Community Services Department needs your assistance in reaching the needy population of Ottawa.  Non-perishable contributions are welcomed for the food hampers given to those in need. Helpers and drivers are also needed Sunday to Thursday to assist with the collection and transportation for the Bread Basket Ministry. Extra hands are always welcomed every second Sunday morning in the Touch of Love Ministry.

Truth Nugget: “For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me” (Matthew 25:35).
