January’s featured Outreach Connection agency is the First United Methodist Church of Salinas. At all services on Sunday, January 10, we will get to watch an inspiring new video showing the ways LAUMC’s partner church is changing lives. New head pastor Steve Lundin continues to build the inclusive Neighborhood Ministry, serving breakfast and lunch six days a week to well over a hundred people a day. This ministry also provides a safe, inviting place for the homeless to gather during the day, a clothes closet, a weekly mobile health clinic, support groups for veterans and those with addictions, job counseling, and more.
Men’s Clothing Drive
Pastor Steve has let us know that in addition to our financial gifts, we can help fill a dire need for men’s clothing. Starting Sunday, January 17, through January 24, we are asking for new men’s socks and underwear and new or gently used pants, shirts, and coats. You may put these items in the red barrels placed around the Sanctuary.
Please give your generous financial and material support to this Outreach Connection ministry, which is truly acting on Jesus’ admonition to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and welcome the stranger as if they were Jesus himself.
