Seeking Renewal
in Our City

Get Involved

Justice & Outreach

Our vision is to be a community following Jesus, seeking renewal in our city. The Justice & Outreach Ministry seeks to fulfill this vision through ministry initiatives, and in partnership with organizations and missionaries across our city and world, who are devoted to the Kingdom-work of compassion and justice.

The Renewal of All Things

We believe that showing compassion and doing justice are an essential part of our discipleship to Jesus. We worship and obey God by caring for the poor, liberating the oppressed, and spending ourselves on behalf of the needy (Isaiah 58, Matthew 25). In scripture, compassion directly reflects God’s heart towards all people, and justice aims at restoring all things to wholeness. Both are central to the realization of God’s Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.

To fulfill this vision, the Justice & Outreach Ministry proclaims the good news of the Kingdom by caring for the poor and marginalized, advocating for more just systems, and educating and activating our church to engage in God’s renewal work.

Investing in Our Neighborhood

As a part of our desire to care for the poor and marginalized in our city, Reality SF has committed to ministry initiatives that directly serve our neighbors.

On Saturdays, we host a Food Pantry, in partnership with SF Marin Food Bank, which provides fresh produce and protein to more than 200 families. Over 120 congregants participate in serving our neighbors and creating spaces for hospitality on a weekly basis.

Our Foster Care Team seeks to support families and children affected by the foster care system through relationship and community. Our team is devoted to activating congregants to get involved, which includes meeting tangible needs (like beds or kitchen items) for families through Care Portal, becoming a support friend through Foster the City, and exploring what it means to become a foster parent.

Through our friendship with Buena Vista Horace Mann (BVHM), our church has had the privilege of serving the students in our neighborhood through weekly tutoring and mentoring. Additionally, in spring 2024, we launched a Drop-in Center for families participating in the Stay-Over Program at BVHM to come enjoy a hot meal and a safe place to gather in the mornings before school and work begin.

Investing in Our City & World

In addition to our time and talents, it brings us joy to financially partner with others engaged in Kingdom work of care and advocacy. We partner with organizations around the world, as well as local and international missionaries, who are dedicated to justice and sharing the good news of Jesus.

We aim to strategically invest in initiatives that benefit the community and foster the spiritual growth of our church. To help facilitate this, a Justice & Outreach Board composed of staff and volunteers assists with investing our finances wisely, contributes to strategic direction, and offers spiritual discernment.
