At Whitney United Methodist Church our mission is to feed our community Spiritually, Intellectually and Physically. We believe that we are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our community. The ways that we feed our community physically are through the following programs:
Food and Clothing Ministry:
~Community Dinner – Community Dinner– meal to go on the Third Friday of every month. 6 p.m.
~Saturday Lunch – Sack lunches are available for anyone in the 83705 Zip Code every Saturday from 10:30am – 12:00pm.
~St. Vincent DePaul Food Pantry – Food given through the Choice Food Pantry to those in need in our community 4 days a week. The Pantry is located just down the street from the church at 3209 Overland Rd. It is open Tuesday and Wednesday from 10am-2pm. Friday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm and Saturday from 9:30am-12:30pm It is closed on Sunday and Monday and Thursdays.
Ways you can be involved: People are needed to volunteer to help people who come into the pantry.
~Joseph’s Closet—Our warm clothing ministry where we give coats, hats, gloves, and scarves to those in our neighborhood who need them.
Joseph’s Closet will open with different hours than in years past. It will be in our main building instead of the trailer we have used in the past. People will need to wear a mask (ones will be provided if you do not have one). Only 6 people will be allowed in at a time. Please bring your ID.
It will be open:
Every Saturday from 10:30am – 12:30 pm
And the following Fridays:
Friday, October 16— 11am-2pm
Friday, November 20 — 11am-2pm
Friday, December 18— 11am-2pm
Friday, January 15— 11am-2pm
Friday, February 19— 11am-2pm
Ways you can be involved: People are needed to donate coats, hats, gloves and scarves for all ages and sizes. Money is needed to help pay the cost of the trailer rent to operate the closet.
2nd and 4th Monday Night Shawlers–Knitting/crocheting prayer shawls for those having surgery, ill, struggling from a death and others who just need to be wrapped in Christian love.
