The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field (Luke 10:2)

 



Servant Hands Ministry: 2018

SERVANT HANDS MINISTRY

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat...
I needed clothes and you clothed me. (Matt 25:35a, 36a)

Servant Hands Ministry Goals:

  1. To work towards eliminating hunger in our community
  2. To offer spiritual support to those broken by life circumstances
  3. To partner with neighborhood churches and community organizations in ministry
  4. To increase membership participation in missions

The Servant Hands Ministry (SHM) is a unit within the larger Mission Ministry of the church. SHM distributes fresh produce and other food items to communities in North Minneapolis. We partner with Second Harvest Heartland, which is one of the nation’s largest, most effective, and innovative hunger relief organizations. Our partnership with Second Harvest is aimed to end hunger in our community.

In addition to the food distribution, the church offers free gently used clothing and small appliances that are donated by the members of our church. The distribution days are the 2nd and 4th Saturday during the months of July, August, September and October.

There are no income restrictions on who is served. Services received from other city, county, state and federal programs are not an issue.

FMBC members are encouraged to volunteer their service to this ministry.

 

Servant Hands Ministry Update

The Servant Hands Ministry (SHM) that offers free food and clothing will begin on July 8, 2017. Future distribution dates are every 2nd and 4th Saturday in the months of July, August, September, and October: July 8, 22; August 12, 26; September 9, 23; and October 14, 28.

There are three ways in which you may serve:

  1. Pray for the success of the ministry: for good weather on distribution days, for the farmers growing the crops, and the recipients who will receive these gifts.
  2. Donate clean and gently used clothing on hangers, shoes, handbags, and jewelry. We especially need men’s, children, and infant clothing. We will accept small working household appliances, pots, pans, and bedding. Because we don’t have storage, please bring donated items only on the distribution days (listed above) at 8:00am. All donors will receive a TAX DONATION SLIP if requested.
  3. Sign up to be a Servant Volunteer to help set-up, organize and disseminate the food and clothing. Sign-ups are being taken in the atrium. Servant Volunteers are needed on distribution days from 8:30- noon.

Please consider helping in one of the many needed areas. You are needed from 8:30am until noon. We especially need people to help with set-up and clean-up. Thanks for your help in the past and for your future service.
