Serving Others

Serving Others

Pacific Beach United Methodist Church is involved in programs that reach beyond the walls of the church and into our local and global community.

Project Grace

Project Grace is a to-go style hot meal served every Wednesday at 4pm.  It is open to any and all who are in need of a meal.  Guests are invited to gather beginning at 3:30 and the meal service concludes by 4:15.    New volunteers are always welcome!

Free Clinic

The UCSD Student-Run Free Clinic offers consultations and appointments with patients who do not have insurance or are in need of assistance accessing traditional healthcare. The Free Clinic provides primary care services, some specialty services, social work services, and pharmacy services. Please call their appointment line at (858) 534-8508 for screening or assistance using your insurance to access traditional care.  

Interfaith Shelter Network

Once each year, for two weeks at a time, PB UMC welcomes guests as part of the Interfaith Shelter Network program. Guests receive dinner, breakfast, and a warm place to spend the night.

“My stay at the Interfaith Shelter has been very helpful. All the volunteers are dedicated, generous people. This time has allowed me to get back on my feet and save some money towards rent. Hopefully, I will move into a decent place and get stabilized.” – Diana

“When I first came to this city, I was broke and destitute, with no job, only one change of clothes and very little hope. The Interfaith Shelter program changed my situation for the better. I got a job working full-time and an entire wardrobe of new clothes. The people who helped us at thechurches were very nice and the dinners they fixed and served us were absolutely divine. I am very thankful for your help and hospitality.” – Cecil
