Welcome to Old First. We probably haven’t met, but you may have heard about Outreach at the church and some of our programs such as our Winter Shelter, Saturday Breakfast and Clothing Cupboard ministries, that have helped hundreds of Philly’s homeless men and women for decades.
My name is Alesha Thomas, I’m the church’s Outreach Coordinator. If you’re interested or know someone who is interested in getting involved with Outreach please reach out.
Outreach is a wonderful way of not only giving back to the community, but also a great opportunity to meet other members of the church — and for those church members who have drifted a bit, Outreach maybe your opportunity to strengthen or re-establish old relationships and connections.
So why Outreach?
I can’t speak for everyone, but I absolutely love this church – it’s heart and mission to serve. I can’t express to you the humility that comes over me working with those less fortunate and to be honest the joy I feel meeting new people from the church and outer community.
We here at Old First, believe there is an ongoing need to serve those less fortunate. And if doing so is something you feel entirely passionate about, again, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
I’d love to speak to you about all the different opportunities here and ways for you to get involved.
I look forward to hearing from you.
