Southeast San Diego & Living Water

Stop by the Children's Building after church this Sunday and sign-up to donate to our Thanksgiving Food Drive! This year, we are collecting food items that will be distributed to two other local Nazarene churches: Southeast San Diego church located near National City, and Living Water church located in downtown San Diego. 

Both of these churches will be hosting a meal for those in need the week of Thanksgiving. If interested, you can also sign-up to volunteer to serve at either of these meal events!

We look forward to having you join us in supporting our local ministry partners in this way this Thanksgiving!

If you'd like to contribute, but are unable to sign-up in person on Sunday, please contact Ryanna Marsh at
