On the last Saturdays of even months, we gather together at Southlands to distribute food to needy families. Come help unpack and organize food for distribution as well as engage and pray with the families. (Spanish speakers especially welcome.)
Southlands Fullerton is an active member of Love Fullerton. This is a partnership of 30+ churches, city government, the Mayor and City Council, the Chief of Police, local businesses, service organizations, public and private education, and local residents all working together to enhance the world-class experience of living and working in our city.
Every Thanksgiving, Southlands gives thanks to God for his many blessings by providing Thanksgiving meals, including a turkey, pumpkin pie, and all the fixings, to families in need. In 2012, Southlands distributed well over 200 such meals. This year, we are praying that the Lord will allow Southlands to provide 500 meals to those in need. You can help by donating food items, money, or your time to help
with our efforts.
Every Christmas, in conjunction with our regular, bimonthly Food Distribution, Southlands provides toys for the children of the needy families. It begins with toy drive throughout December, and ends with a distribution where kids get to meet Santa and pick a toy of their choice. There are also plenty of opportunities to engage with and pray for the families.
“And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
“Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. […] Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
