Caring for Friends

At Living Word, we hope you feel fed. Food is the most basic human need. At Living Word, we want to feed people in a human sense and in a spiritual sense.

One of our biggest service ministries at Living Word is our work with Caring for Friends. The mission of Caring for Friends is to serve needy, isolated shut-ins, primarily the frail elderly, in the 5 county Greater Philadelphia area, with free daily home-cooked meals delivered weekly by empathetic volunteer visitors, and also to provide shut-ins with free outreach services. The goal is to help our homebound “client/friends” maintain their cherished independence by supporting their determination to remain in their own homes for as long as possible and to enhance their quality of life.

At Living Word we gather monthly to assemble meals to be distributed by Caring for Friends. If you would like to help in this ministry join us on the third Tuesday of every month, around 6:30 p.m. to help do meal assembly. If you would like to help with the cooking and preparation of the meals or have any questions please contact the church office at for details. This is an excellent opportunity for those within the congregation to come together during the week and serve God by serving others.
