Since there will never cease to be some in need on the earth, I therefore command you, ‘Open your hand to the poor and needy neighbor in your land.’ 

Deuteronomy 15:11

To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.

Christian Outreach in Action (COA) is located in an old church facility on the corner of Linden and 3rd Street in the downtown area of Long Beach. The building includes a sanctuary, meeting room, kitchen, small dining room, patio and a basement. This downtown mission outpost welcomes folks and families that need a meal, a coat or shoes and/or other useful, often necessary items. Our church is frequently on hand to serve a hot meal with a smile and blessing.

Information on how and when volunteers are needed for food preparation and serving meals is available at church or by calling the church phone number: (562) 420-3393 for days and times.

Also, if you have items that can be of use, please drop them in the donation shed near the church parking lot on a Sunday before or after church services. Please put your items on the shelves that are labeled “COA”.
