We follow Christ’s example, given to us in Matthew 25:35, “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink.” We believe that access to healthy nutritious food and a roof over one’s head is a human right. To that end, we tackle food and housing issues in a variety of ways. Our members can be found volunteering at local food shelves and on committees trying to address homelessness. As a congregation, we take a food collection for Neighborhood House, and we prepare and serve a meal for Loaves and Fishes once every other month. We would invite you to join us in these ministries.
If you are experiencing food insecurity, and live on the West Side of Saint Paul, we would invite you to talk with our pastor, and to visit the Neighborhood House Food Pantry. They can also assist you in evaluating whether you might qualify for food assistance through SNAP. If you live elsewhere, 1st Call for Help (651-291-0211), can assist you in identifying the closest food shelf to you. If you are experiencing housing insecurity, or in need of other types of assistance, Ramsey County Salvation Army, is a great resource for many types of assistance in our community (651-746-3400).
