Church Ministries

We seek to do the will of God in Montbello remembering: A third time Jesus asked Peter, "Simon son of John, do you love me?" Peter was hurt that Jesus asked the question a third time. He said, "Lord, you know everything. You know that I love you." Jesus said, "Then feed my sheep."  John 21: 17

 

Regardless of race, color, creed or religious background, you are welcome to come and give your time to these ministries or just come to be fed!

The Urban Farm @Montbello

Since 2015, the Urban Farm at Montbello has provided thousands of pounds of fresh produce for the community.
