The Welfare Ministry is a program of the King’s Court Parish, Los Angeles. The purpose of welfare is to help members of the church to become self-reliant and to care for the poor and needy in the church, and also reaching out to those in our community e.g, the Orphans, sick, homeless & widows.
The welfare ministry gives us an opportunity to look into the life of our Lord Jesus Christ and also to experience the type of life he lived while on earth. The Bible makes it clear to us in Matthew 25 :40: "And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." The ministry of our Lord Jesus was focused on giving to and helping the needy.
Welfare is both temporal and spiritual well-being, our major goal is to see to the welfare of the church, reach out to the poor and needy, and spreading the word of God through the act of kindness and generosity showing Love when its most needed. The welfare ministry provides refreshment on Sundays for members, visitors/guests and on special events that take place in the church. Welfare Ministry works to achieve that which the master (Jesus) has called us to do. In Philippians 4:3 the bible says: "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" and we believe we can reach out to as many that are in need. Shalom!!!
