We work regularly with organizations to serve the under-resourced and marginalized children around the globe. Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) and Believe Guatemala are two partners we are doing something with this month to feed and care for kids in need.
M&M’s Fundraising Tubes (FMSC)
We’re working with our longtime partner Feed My Starving Children to end hunger and there’s an easy—and fun—way you can help. At the Manhattan Beach or Torrance campus, grab a tube of M&M’s candies from our Outreach area for each person in your family. Enjoy the chocolate, then during the week, fill the empty tubes with quarters and bring them back to church with you next Sunday. Each filled tube you turn in feeds 63 kids with meals!
Believe Guatemala, a group home and school Journey visited during one of our short-term missions, also receives these FMSC meals. We’re partnering with them to provide quilts for each of the children in their care. We’ll have quilt squares set up at our Outreach area at both campuses and we’d love for you to draw or write on a square. Journey’s awesome quilting team will then put these squares together into beautiful quilts to remind these kids they’re loved and cared for.
Part of our mission at Journey is to demonstrate our love for our community by serving them. Help us write letters of encouragement and make friendship bracelets that will be included in a welcome basket full of home essentials for these families. Whether you are on campus or at home, we’d love for you to participate!
How to Make a Welcome Bracelet
What you’ll need: 2- 5′ pieces of embroidery thread (for best results use two different colors), scissors, tape
We partner with local organizations to promote social justice and instill hope in leaders throughout the South Bay.

Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) – Lobby Host
There is a lot of apprehensions, uncertainty, and sometimes even anger that comes along with DCFS visits. The Lobby Host is there to ease the apprehension and replace it with hope. Hosts help to create a sense that the client is not alone and that they have someone who cares about them.
During your shift, you will greet clients, take inventory, provide snacks & games, and just make them feel welcome/cared for. You will also answer any questions or concerns that they might have! If this is something that interests you, please register to learn more.
