MISSIONS AND JUSTICE MINISTRIES

Below we have a list of several of the missions and justice ministries that we offer here at Park Hill United Methodist Church. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible when joining one of our ministry programs. We believe that engaging in mission and justice work is a very important tool when growing to be more like Jesus.

For more information on our ministries you can email church@phumc.org.


Women's Homelessness Initiative (WHI)

Although the Women’s Homelessness Initiative (WHI) has suspended on-site shelter and hospitality at our churches and temples, staff and volunteers continue to advocate for services and safety for our women. During this pandemic, for the sake of our entire community our homeless population needs, now more than ever, a HOME to be able to be in. Support City/State Leadership to get agreements with hotel chains for our people. Write a letter or email the Governor, Mayor, and State and City Leaders.

Senior Support Services Senior Meal

Volunteers are invited to drop in and help prepare meals in the PHUMC kitchen at 5:30 p.m. the Wednesday before the second Thursday of each month and to help serve food at the Senior Support Services agency the following evening at 5:30 p.m. 

 

 

DURING the Pandemic:

In less than 24 hours after putting out the request, our community pledged to make more than 80 sack lunches to be distributed to seniors in need during the month of April! Stay tuned for the next round of sack lunch requests!

Sanctuary Church

Park Hill United Methodist Church and Temple Micah are proud to announce that we are a Sanctuary Church and will provide sanctuary for our undocumented friends in need. Many volunteers provide support for our Sanctuary family, although continued support is needed from our communities and friends. 

Center for Health and Hope

COVID-19 is wreaking havoc on the United States and the world. No global “economic package” exists. Help the Center respond by raising $30,000 in assistance for our partner friends in Kenya, Rwanda, India, Sri Lanka & Malaysia. Care for yourself, family, & neighbors first, but if you can, please share with the super vulnerable of the world. Gifts of any size are magnificent! Let us know it is coming by sending an email to globalaids@gmail.com so that we can begin using the funds immediately. Donate online using the arrow button below.

Casa De Paz

Casa de Paz continues to support immigrant families with members who are in detention at the GEO Center in Aurora. When more than 20 people were released late last month, Casa de Paz and their volunteers were there to pick them up, provide them with basic supplies and help them reunite with their families. Head to their website to find out how you can help during the pandemic.

Early Reading and Mentoring Program at Hallett Academy

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Early Reading & Mentoring Program at Hallett Academy has been suspended for the rest of the school year.  We would however like to continue fostering a love of books and reading for the students. Throughout our reading program, one of our program partners, Book Trust, had provided three books to each student every month to take home after we had read those books to them.  Due to the Hallett building closing, this program has also been suspended.  We hope that our community reading volunteers will help fill this gap by purchasing at least two books by June 1st.

As an inclusive community of faith, Park Hill United Methodist Church is an open and affirming congregation, embracing diversity, service, unconditional acceptance, and the care and support of all people in the name of Jesus Christ.
