The Heart of the United Methodist Church!
The heart of our congregation, the activities of our local United Methodist Women Chapter and the global United Methodist Church is tied to mission….. mission around the world, mission in the United States and mission here in our local community. We are the hands of Jesus and the heart of God’s kingdom.
EVERY DAY! EVERY WORD! EVERY ACT!
One of the global projects that has captivated the United Methodist Church is the “Imagine No Malaria” campaign in Sub-Saharan Africa. In 2010 in that region of the world, Malaria killed one person every 60 seconds. Now, that number has been cut in half!! The Global United Methodist Church along with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the NBA, The United Nations, The Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, and many other partners have committed to eliminate Malaria deaths. The Global United Methodist Church has raised over $65 million of our $75 million goal. Unlike many other diseases Malaria is 100% preventable and treatable.
In our local area, we are committed to feeding hungry people through the Tualatin School House Pantry here in Tualatin. Our members volunteer, give funds, and provide thousands of pounds of food each year. Last year we started a community garden and donated 1,200 lbs of fresh produce to the pantry.
We are expanding the garden this year and hoping for a bumper crop!! Come and check it out anytime!
Feel free to drop food or your donations off at our church building and we will transport it for you!
About 530 households are served in Tualatin, Durham, West Linn and Lake Oswego each month - 51% of whom are children. In addition, many volunteers help to staff the pantry, assisting shoppers and stocking shelves etc.
The pantry is located at 3550 SW Borland Road, Tualatin, OR 97062 map and directions
Want to volunteer at the pantry? Please call the pantry at 503-783-0721 and leave a message for the Volunteer Coordinator or send an email to: email@example.com.
