For more than 25 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 September 30, 2018, we join several United Methodist congregations at La Jolla UMC in an effort to pack 10,000 meals for Rise Against Hunger, an organization that distributes food to more than 65 countries around the world.
Since the inception of Rise Against Hunger’s meal packaging program in December 2005, these packaged meals have been used primarily to support school feeding programs in developing countries. Join faithful United Methodists on September 16, 2018 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.
