For more than 20 years, Pacific Beach UMC has been a beacon of Christ-like service as we have served thousands of meals to local neighbors in need. The heart of service over these years has been solidly scriptural, remembering that when Jesus’ disciples came to him and said, “Dismiss the crowds, they’ll be getting hungry,” Jesus said, “They don’t need to go away, YOU give them something to eat.” (Matthew 14:13-21)
This month, we partner with other United Methodist congregations to live out this mission globally. On April 17, 2016, we join the good people of San Dieguito UMC in Encinitas, the Abundant Life Community of Korean UMC in San Diego, and La Jolla UMC in an effort to pack 10,000 meals for Stop Hunger Now, an organization that distributes food to more than 65 countries around the world.
For as little as 29 cents, a bag filled with rice, soy, and dried vegetables can feed a family. Join faithful United Methodists on April 17, 2016 at La Jolla UMC at 2:00pm to package meals. This is a fun and casual event, and entire families are encouraged to sign up together. To sign up or to donate toward the costs of food to be packaged, please click the button below.
