Serving our Neighbors
What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? Micah 6:8
Our God calls us to serve others, and to love our neighbors as ourselves. The United Methodist Church is built on a foundation of service to society in the name of the God who heals all things. Here at Hamline Church, we serve our neighborhood through our community bread oven. We serve our city through feeding ministries like Loaves and Fishes, and we serve our world by working to green our building. Children, youth, and adults all have opportunities here to do good for the community, serve others, and encounter neighbors we would never expect.
In 2016, our refugee ministry assists a family of seven during their first months of living in the United States. Our youth served 110 plates of meatloaf at the Simpson Shelter. We gathered 2,563 $/lbs of food during the Minnesota Food Share. Our Dining Hall served more than 2,000 people at the 'Back to the 50s' Car Show. Hundreds of people came to eat pizza out of our community bread oven.
And there's much, much more.
