Christ the Good Shepherd American Coptic Orthodox Church needs your help to purchase a church ASAP.
We need your help to resume our services. We are currently a homeless church dedicated to serving the homeless and at-risk community of Long Beach. Due to not having a permanant location, we have had to limit our current services to once a month. We are asking for your donations to help us raise the funds for our down payment to resume our services and ministry on a daily basis.

Thank You for everything, concerning everything, and in everything.

Here at Christ the Good Shepherd American Coptic Orthodox Church we have been thankfully serving Long Beach for the past year. The Church is commanded to tend to those who are in need, homeless, at-risk, and brokenhearted. By the grace of God we have been able to start a church with this mission—to love the poor.

Every weekend we serve 150-250 people: we share food, we share clothing, we share stories, we share Christ. As we meet one another in brokenness, we pray together and we cry together. This has given us a taste of what the Church can offer to the community. As the service grows each weekend, more and more people are eager to come and share and serve; however, we have outgrown our current location. God-willing, we will offer these services daily in a new home (one mile away from our current location in Long Beach) to facilitate the growth of the services.

Thanks be to God, with the donations of His saints, we have been blessed with an opportunity to be able to seek and serve Christ regularly. 

God bless you and please keep our ministry in your prayers.

'Come, you blessed of 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 drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me... 
Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.'
Matthew 25:34-40
