On Thanksgiving Day 2019 Calvary Chapel East Anaheim is hosting our first annual homeless resource day. The event will emulate an event that Calvary Chapel Las Vegas has been hosting for over 10 years. The focus is on sharing the love of Jesus with the less fortunate in our community by meeting physical and spiritual needs.

What is Blessfest?

 

 

Blessfest is an outreach to the homeless community in our neighborhood.

In  Luke 6:31 we are told to, “Treat others the same way you want them to treat you.”  

That is exactly what we are doing this Thanksgiving Day when we open the doors of the church

to hundreds of people who are currently experiencing homelessness.

 

 

Objective

 

 

Our goal is to meet as many physical needs as possible for each guest while pointing them toward the only one who can meet their spiritual needs, Jesus! There will be prayer, worship, a gospel message and several free social services. Each guest will have the opportunity to utilize these free services which include but are not limited to, a complete Thanksgiving meal, clothing, medical, dental, dermatological, vision, haircuts, manicures, make-up, showers, legal and social services. Guests are also going to be given new backpacks stocked with personal hygiene items, toiletries, and scripture reminders.

 

Jesus has blessed so many of us with an abundance of material possessions. Thanksgiving Day is a great day to remember these blessings and to say thank you to the one who provided for these needs. “Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me. Matthew 25:40
