Community Outreach

Spirit in Action

Social Justice Group

Who We Are:

Spirit in Action, the social justice group was formed to serve people in our community, across the country and throughout the world to live in dignity and peace. Among the issues addressed are homelessness, immigration, women's rights, equality for all, gun control, refugees, just to name a few. We join with other organizations working in these areas. Our mission: Connect with the community to insure love and equality to all that are in need of light.


We meet the last Sunday of each month at Swami's Restaurant in North Park at 9am. Contact: Lorraine Iverson at lai92116@yahoo.com for questions.

North Park Lions Club 

We enjoy an active service partnership with NP Lions as a benefit of previously sharing their space for Sunday gatherings. Some of the projects in the works are those that serve local schools and students from disadvantaged backgrounds, such as delivering fresh produce from the San Diego Food Bank to the schools for parents to pick up when they pick up their children as well as other needs. Lions Club International is a service membership organization of over 1.7 million members worldwide, with programs which include sight conservation, hearing and speech conservation, diabetes awareness, youth outreach, international relations, environmental issues and many others.

Interfaith Shelter Network 

Each winter, volunteers prepare and serve meals for San Diego homeless through the Interfaith Shelter Network. Contact: Viraj Ward at virajward@gmail.com.

Angel Tree Program 

Each winter, the Angel Tree Program provides gifts for children of Parenting Youth in San Diego's Extended Foster Care Program. Interested in participating? Email angeltreeSD@gmail.com

Paper Bag Ministry

Each month, we fill bags with water, snacks and personal hygiene products. Anyone can take
bags to give to those they meet asking for assistance.

Each month we tithe to people and organizations that align with our Center's purpose and mission.
