Peace Cafe + Local Outreach
The ministries of Peace Memorial Presbyterian Church are primarily coordinated by the church's deacons, and are a visible expression of God's love , and an extension of God's love into the world.
We serve a warm meal to our hungry neighbors on Thursdays at 5:30 pm. Many outside groups come to volunteer but hosts from our congregation are still needed. The first and second Thursdays are when we really need help. Contact Dan Johnson about adding your name to the list of servants.
ADDITIONAL MEALS SERVED
SUNDAYS AT 4:00 PM - St. Paul's United Methodist Homeless Ministries at Peace Cafe
MONDAYS AT 5:30 PM - Thorn Ministries at Peace Cafe
Cold Night Shelter
Peace Memorial opens the Cold Night Shelter between November 15 and March 15 when the temperature drops below 40 degrees. The decision to open is made by Pinellas County. In 2014 we were open 5 nights. Volunteers are needed for all shifts: 5pm to 8pm (Check-In and Dinner), 8pm to 11pm (Check-In and Movie), 11pm to 5am (Night Watch), and 5am to 8am (Breakfast and Check-out). Contact Sue Ellis to volunteer at 727.742.2550

Please help feed hungry children! Did you know that 24% of the children in Pinellas County are “food insecure”? Did you know that 91.7% of the students at Belleair Elementary are on free reduced lunch? It costs approximately $4 per sack to feed a child each weekend or $128 for one school year. Based on the number of sacks last year (3,785 sacks), the projected cost to feed the same number of children during the 2014-2015 school year will be $9,120. If we have sufficient funding we hope to serve even more children. Please make a donation to Pack-A-Snack. Any amount will be greatly appreciated.
