There will always be poor people in the land. Therefore I command you to be openhanded toward your brothers and toward the poor and needy in your land.  Deuteronomy 15:11

Who are we?

Ladle Fellowship is a ministry of First Presbyterian Church, San Diego to the homeless and poor in the downtown area.

What do we do?

We serve a hot meal and offer a worship service each Sunday afternoon that is attended primarily by San Diego's urban poor and homeless.

We distribute food bags once a month to low-income seniors and needy veterans.

We provide groceries for needy military families once a month.

We assist needy individuals in their job searches and offer valuable work experience and references through on-going volunteer opportunities.

We offer on-going pastoral care and counseling with a focus on re-uniting fragmented families, restoring broken relationships, and establishing a life committed to purpose.

We gather weekly for a Practical discipleship class with an emphasis on helping the homeless and others become committed lifelong followers of Jesus Christ through the study of Scripture and its practical application.

We provide a valuable service to churches, ministries, and other organizations by offering a dynamic, structured, and safe environment in which to volunteer and serve those in need.

Why do we do it?

Relationship based evangelism and discipleship are at the heart of all we do. We aim to proclaim the good news of salvation through Christ; to help homeless believers and others in seeking a biblically ordered life, and to become more deeply committed disciples ourselves. We desire to bring God glory as we work to build and expand Christ's kingdom.
