Saturday Community Lunch Program

“…Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.”  – Matthew 25:34b-36

Park Avenue Christian Church’s Saturday Community Lunch Program (SCLP) is one of its paramount and continuous running ministries for over a quarter of a century. An Ecumenical endeavor in partnership with Manhattan Church of Christ, Park Avenue United Methodist Church. Our volunteers come from throughout the US and the program was founded on Jesus’ words from the Gospel of Matthew.

Saturday Community Lunch is held each Saturday at 1:00 pm at Manhattan Church of Christ 48 East 80th Street. If you would like to volunteer, please contact us at
