OFF-CAMPUS MINISTRIES

In Our Community. For Our Community. With Our Community. 

All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.

2 Corinthians 5:18-19

Support During Covid-19

Damascus International Fellowship is committed to doing our part to keep our family, friends, and community safe during the Covid-19 epidemic. During this season while we all Stay Home to Stay Healthy, all in-person gatherings are on hold.  We will  resume ministry at Ms. Lillie's Closet, Brookdale, Damascus on the Street, and Lazarus House as soon as it is safe to do so.

In the meantime, we are still doing what we can to support those who have been impacted by the coronavirus.
Damascus International Fellowship has partnered with Emergency Feeding Program to provide Drive-Up Groceries to families in need. 

Street Ministry

The Damascus Street Ministry (also known as Damascus on the Street) is an evangelistic outreach to members of our community. In collaboration with other faith based and public/private partners we
 work together to rescue souls and restore lives in Rainier Valley.

Helen's Hands

Helen's Hands Ministry provides healthy pre-packed meals to underserved members of our community. Our distribution sites vary from undisclosed women's shelters to community centers.

Lazarus Center

Join us on the 3rd Saturday of every month as Damascus International Fellowship volunteers to provide hot meals to homeless and marginally housed men and women age 50 and older who visit the Lazarus Center. 

Ms. Lillie's Closet

 Ms. Lillie's Closet is a free clothing boutique offering new and gently used clothes, shoes, and accessories for men, women, and children. We are open every Saturday afternoon from 12pm - 4pm April through October. During winter we are open by appointment.
