Church & Community united in Love-Faith-Peace!
The A.R. Nelson Christian Outreach Center, a Ministry of Bethel AME Church, provides food, clothing and pantry to needy individuals and families in the community.
Food and clothing are distributed on a monthly basis based on family size. Every effort is made to include food items that are healthy and nutritious.
Clients select clothing items from the men’s, women’s and/or children’s sections depending upon their family make-up.
Prayer and spiritual fellowship are available to all.

The Committee on Social Action of Bethel AME is a part of the Connectional Commission on Social Action. We coordinate local church activities and information on social issues affecting the members and the neighbors of our church.
Our goals include:
- voter participation through registration drives and hosting meetings on neighborhood concerns and with local politicians;
- economic development by offering assistance with job searches and job preparation;
- public awareness of issues that impact our local neighborhoods, such as the gentrification of East San Antonio; and
literacy through our ongoing speed reading program.
Contact us at [email protected] if you have issues or concerns affecting our neighborhoods. Include CSA or Social Action in the subject line and we will respond as quickly as possible.
