Leader: Donna Berry
With the aim to reach our community by providing a worship service and a meal for the homeless, poor, and hungry, Community of Hope is a collaborative effort involving a number of local churches. The ministry of Community of Hope is affiliated with First United Methodist Church at 3rd and Lead, and the meal and worship service is held in the Fellowship Hall onsite at First UMC on Sunday afternoons at 1:00 pm. St. Stephen's is involved by providing the meal on the 1st Sunday of each quarter. During the current pandemic, Community of Hope has hosted an outdoor worship service. Food and water is given out, as well as desserts.
How is St. Stephen's involved?
For over two years, we have provided a quarterly lasagna meal. Please contact the church office at (505) 293-9673 if you would like more information on how you can be involved in this ministry.
