giving garden partnership
On September 1, 2021, we broke ground on our community garden in partnership with Giving Garden OKC. We are excited to be a part of the transformational work of this organization to combat food insecurity and educate our community about growing, preparing, and preserving the harvest. Check out their interview with News 9 here or visit their Facebook page.
lazarus community accepting donations for emergency food kits
We often receive hungry visitors at our doors needing a few days worth of food that can be easily prepared and eaten without access to a kitchen. Each emergency food kit has two days worth of food and hygiene items, plus cold water on hot days or a warm drink on the coldest days. We also provide items such as masks and hand sanitizer to help protect our friends from communicable illnesses, such as COVID-19. Our amazon wish list can be found here, but we also accept donations purchased locally and brought to the church at 5808 NW 23rd. If bringing a donation, please call 405-942-0930 to arrange a time.
Lazarus community rezoning approved
On Tuesday, March 29, the Oklahoma City city council approved our application to be rezoned for residential occupancy in part of our building and our grounds. We are now taking applications for residents who wish to live in a new monastic community of service and hospitality. We will begin taking applications for residents who are recovering from homelessness in late summer of 2022. Please see our "Residents" page for more information.
