PASE (Prayer, Assistance, Service, Evangelism)
is the homeless initiative ministry of Woodland Community Church. We serve independently along with partnering with various organizations in order to assist in the needs of homeless individuals within the Manatee, Sarasota and Desoto County area. We host a luncheon once a month at the Remnant Cafe' in Sarasota along with collecting and distributing supplies on an ongoing basis. PASE is open to anyone who would like to serve within our community.

We welcome you to serve with us. There is no obligation but we are always in need of loving hands and hearts. Below you will find a schedule of our future opportunites. If you are interested, you can email Jacqueline Bevan and she will get back with you. If you have any specific questions, please contact Jacqueline at

PASE is always looking for caring volunteers with a heart for our homeless community. There are opportunities every month to join our team and serve:

Remnant Cafe - Monthly Homeless Luncheon (download information PDF)
We support the Remnant Cafe' in Sarasota by providing a monthly luncheon for the homeless community on the 4th Saturday of every month from 1-2:30pm. Each of our team members brings a covered dish and we serve out to approximately 100-125 people. Even though they enjoy the food we bring, the appreciate the acknowledgement, love and encouragement much more. The relationships we have formed over the life of the ministry are immeasurable.

Woodland Community Church - Hygiene Product Pack-Up
We collect hygiene products all month long and form "packs" (or small bags) of items for members of the homeless community to use from day to day. The first Thursday evening of every month we separate all items donated and create the packs to be distributed the second Sunday of every month. Help us by spreading the word to bring in any travel-sized hygiene products to out collection bin.

Downtown Sarasota - Hygiene Product Distribution
Our ministry takes to the streets on the second Sunday of every month and distributes small packs of trial-size hygiene products. All month long we encourage our Woodland family to bring in products and fill our bin located in the connector. Distribution occurs from the front of Whole Foods located at 1451 1st Street, Sarasota, FL 34236 at 2:00pm.
