LIKE JESUS, Shekinah Glory Deliverance Church has a desire and passion to reach out to the community and help. Faith without works is dead. We have the faith so we perform the work. A man on the street was asking people to assist him because he was hungry. So many responded, "I will pray for you." Prayer is great but Jesus would have prayed and feed him. God is calling the church to do more and its our mission to do greater.
Each year we provide Thanksgiving dinners to families. Each year we adopt families during the Christmas holiday and provide items for the children and food for the family. During the year, we are always providing and distributing items of need to the homeless.
Rather than having programs in the church to raise funds, we are in the community. Your donations will help us help the community.
Apostle in the Community
For the volunteers helping with this year’s Crossroads Street Ministry turkey giveaway, it’s not just about putting food on the table at Thanksgiving.
This is the fifth year Pastor Tim Davis and his wife Dianne Davis have organized a giveaway of turkeys and bags filled with all the side dishes to fill out a Thanksgiving meal.
The bags also have other necessary items like paper towels, Lysol, laundry detergent, toilet paper and water. On Sunday afternoon, volunteers distributed about 55 bags to grateful recipients who also walked away with shoes, socks, shirts, pants and coats.
Apostle Dwight Bynum, a Wilson native who now lives in Fort Washington, Maryland, comes back every year to help. “This is such a good thing because you are giving back to a community that needs help,” he said. Bynum said this giveaway isn’t just about the meal. “You don’t just need food. You need some way to be warm. You need something on your feet,” Bynum said. “You need to be able to feel like you have been made whole.”
“It’s important because you are helping somebody who can just shop until they drop,” Bynum said. “It’s giving something. It is making them feel important and special — because they are important and special.” Bynum said people should consider donating the clothes and household items they no longer need instead of throwing them away.
“We decided to put it out here and just let them go shopping,” Bynum said. “We’ve got books, we’ve got children’s and mens and women’s clothes. We’ve got shoes. We’re just giving away anything we can think of so if anybody has a need, they can pick it up here. I’m just grateful to be able to help out, and I think this ministry is doing a great job.”
RUBIES in Action
Cornerstone residents were treated to a night of food and entertainment by Shekinah Glory Deliverance Church RUBIES Women’s Ministry. RUBIES members arrived at Cornerstone with trays of delicious ribs, chicken, potato salad, and green beans donated by Dale’s Smokehouse in Indian Head, MD. They also brought gifts, toiletry items, and other much-needed items for DASH participants. Before the dinner began, the women and children participated in a game and listened to a beautiful song performed by a RUBIES member. The volunteers expressed their solidarity with Cornerstone residents and reminded them of how special and brave they were to leave an abusive relationship. All participants left the event full of fantastic food and grateful for a wonderful evening. DASH is so thankful to Shekinah Glory Deliverance Church for reaching out to us and providing residents with such a memorable night!
Our mission trip - Give Kids The World in Kissimmee, Florida. They host terminal ill children and families for a week and give them the world. It was an awarding experience we will cherish forever. To see the smiles on the children faces and the love and support of family and people that care was simply awesome. GKTW operate on volunteers and donations. Please take the time to Google and watch their PSA on youtube. Major companies such as Perkins Restaurant, Bryers Ice Cream, and Boston Market donate food and employees and they need people with love in their hearts and smiles on their faces. We are looking forward to going again. A perfect way to spend those vacation days...by giving back. Thank you Lord for another life cherished experience.
Beginning with humble roots in 1980, Martha’s Table was originally a place for children to receive free sandwiches and food after school. We gradually grew to address the additional needs of the community by finding solutions to poverty in the short and long term. We address emergency needs with food and clothing programs and break the long cycle of poverty with education and family support services. Martha's Table is always looking for volunteers.

United Way - Day of Caring
United Way of Charles County Day of Caring, held each year in September is so important to so many agencies. Volunteers from around the county, consisting of members of the community and staff from Charles County businesses, take the day off from their regular duties to contribute their time and energy to our non-profit agencies; completing many types of projects. Without the help of volunteers, many of these projects would not get done.
