Community Outreach Center

Located at 525 E 18th Street in Downtown Antioch (next to Dairy Queen), the Community Outreach Center exists to help provide for the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of the vulnerable around us. Below are some of the services available.

Free Hot Meal
Free Hot Meal

Monday-Friday, doors open @ 5pm. Our desire is that no one in our community suffer from hunger or malnutrition. Each night we serve a wholesome, home-cooked hot meal to satisfy our appetite. However, we also realize there is a spiritual hunger that God wants to fulfill in each one of us and we have a brief worship service designed to help us connect with the Lord each evening. Everyone is welcome to join regardless of their faith background.
