Project 2: Collecting Food Donations: We want to support the Berlin Stadtmission. From November till March they have a “Winter Watch” for homeless people. We want to go to a grocerie shop (KAISERS) and want to encourage customers to give small donations e.g. pack of flour etc. We will deliver the donation to the Stadtmission in the evening (http://www.berliner-stadtmission.de/wie-sie-helfen/aktuelle-spendenprojekte/kaeltehilfe). This will be our last time at the Stadtmission as it is closed from April till Oktober. The next project there will be in November!
Project 3: Fresh air, nature and some gardening: In the garden of the Siloah residence there is always plenty to do- especially in spring time. Siloah is a facility for handicapped people- young and old. STC has been there for a couple of times and we have good relationships with the gardeners. We will help weeding,raking and make the garden ready for spring!
Project 4: Feel like at home at Café Treffpunkt! We want to create a special afternoon for the visitors of the Café Treffpunkt.
Project 5: Everything becomes new at Memi-Treff! We need handy people who know how to hold a brush because in this 12 storie building we will help to create a new living atmosphere and make everything look new!
Evening-Projekt 6: Soupkitchen: Those of you who want to have a closer contact to people without a home can register here. In the evening we will help at the soup kitchen to serve food to 160-200 people. This will be our last time at the Stadtmission as it is closed from April till Oktober.

the world … where we work and play. Each and everyone of us has the God-given responsibility of sharing the gospel with family members, friends, co-workers, and neighbors. If we want to know God by experience, then we will have to learn to lovingly obey him by sharing our faith with the non-believers in our circles of influence.
