We offer multiple opportunities to serve our local community through hands on events. We also designate a portion of our budget to local non-profits. Our giving and serving ministries are led by our members (all volunteers). Currently the main volunteer Codirectors of Missions at San Pedro are Scott & Melissa Boedeker. You can read more about our them HERE.

As we enter into a month of Kindness Challenges, we have a unique opportunity to help our local friends and neighbors.
San Pedro has maintained a long-standing relationship with local non-profit Christian Assistance Ministry (CAM). They are still recovering from their August warehouse fire, and they are in dire need of new and gently used cold weather clothing (coats, jackets, hoodies) and casual shoes (tennis shoes, work shoes/boots) for their homeless clients. All sizes are needed for men, women and children!
In response to their urgent need, our San Pedro Missions Team is collecting your donations from Nov 19th - Dec 10th. As part of our November “Kindness Challenge,” please start searching through your closets and checking out pre-Christmas sales! Thank you so much for sharing your bounty with our less fortunate brothers and sisters in Christ.
With your help, we can be kind to our neighbors.
We're growing! With more children attending Sunday morning worship with their families, we're expanding our program into multiple classrooms. We've got a team of teachers but we need more children's ministry helpers.
The Sunday morning program we host is a special time for children. Sign-up for specific Sundays through our Sign Up Genius link: HERE. Make a difference.
For more information, please contact our Children's Ministry leaders: Alicia Jeffrey & Madison Munoz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
[This is a transcribed letter we received from Jean Bakatubia on behalf of his family. They arrived legally in The United States in search of freedom and a better life].
Dear Pastor Bryan/entire congregation,
This thank you letter is intended to show our gratitude. I and my family to the church for all the love and support you have shown us.
I am thankful to you from the bottom of my heart for all the assistance you have given me and my family. When we cam to the US, we had no place to worship. But when we came to church, you welcomed us and you showed us love.
I want to thank Bobby, Dennis, Suzy and every one else for your sacrifice to provide us with transportation to and from church and other appointments.
I am now ready to give myself a ride, and I can't thank you enough.
Thank you for the love and support. This kind of love has taught me a lot and has increased my faith in the Lord.
Pastor thank you for welcoming my family and making us fell at home. I am happy to call you all friends. Thank you.
Yours in Christ,
San Pedro family members had a fun time supporting local non-profit Christian Assistance Ministries (CAM) as they provide food, shelter and assistance to our neighbors and friends around San Antonio. Folks donated over 500 boxes equaling over 4,000 individual servings of popular cereal brands.
San Pedro has a long-standing relationship with CAM, donating from our annual budget towards their operating expenses, giving clothing for their clients, and collecting specific food items as requested. To learn more about what CAM is doing in our community to provide a variety of much needed support, watch the video here:
Each month we witness the joys of handing out meals to our neighbors in south San Antonio. We package the meals as a team, then deliver 125 meals to two apartment complexes.
60+ children typically show up to take food back to their families. All 125 meals are given out. This is a great way to support our local community! We serve on the third Friday of every month in two teams. Sign up in the narthex after worship for next month's serving opportunity.
