Community Outreach

Jacob Chapel believes in the core concept of Matthew 25 which admonishes us to carry out the mandate of Jesus to feed, clothe, house and care for the “least” within our church and our community. Through many partnerships with local agencies, we are afforded the opportunity to serve those in need in various capacities.

Senior Meals
The Senior Meals outreach provides meal assistance to members of the Tallahassee community. Two freshly prepared meals are delivered to 50 seniors each Saturday morning. Those served are members of Jacob Chapel and the community at large.
