OUTREACH TO THE HOMELESS

Sundays

We meet at the Historic Wesley Center at 3:00 pm to go out on the streets to invite people to our Sunday evening meal. Click here to sign up.

Tuesdays (3-6pm soup-making, 6-8:30 pm outreach)

We meet at the Historic Wesley Center at 3:00 pm to prepare soup, or at 6:00 pm to go out to look for people of peace.

Typically, we bring soup, bread and water to Harbor Light shelter. As we are serving the people there, we ask the Holy Spirit to highlight those we should talk to. We seek to get to know them, learn about their story and pray for them.  We invite them to join us Sunday at the Wesley Center for dinner and worship.  After outreach, we return to Wesley, clean up, and sit down and debrief before departing for home.

Personal Outreach (What works best for your group?):

*Group Transportation is available on the Breakthrough Bus

If our Tuesday outreach does not fit well with your schedule, we will work with you to schedule outreach that does.  We recommend doing outreach in a group of five or more people.

To arrange a personal outreach, call Heidi Hutchinson at (952)406-8536 or email her at heidi@breakthroughmn.org.
