The Church With A Warm Heart

“A ministry of First United Methodist Church of Oxford, AL”


Next Meal: August 5, 2017

 Mission Statement:

Soup for the Soul is an evangelistic outreach program designed to reach the elderly, underprivileged, indigent, homeless, and transients in our community by providing a free meal to nourish their soul and body. This is an extraordinary opportunity to give back to the community and offer a healthy meal to those in need.

 

Scriptual Foundation:

"I was hungry and you gave me food to eat.  I was thirsty and you gave me a drink.  I was a stranger and you welcomed me." ~ Matthew 25:35 

We envision providing one Saturday lunch each quarter initially.
Our meals are scheduled for February, April, May, August, September, and November from 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.  
 
As this ministry unfolds, Soup for the Soul may be expanded to include more offerings. We will prayerfully consider God’s calling and be sensitive to the nudging of the Holy Spirit as we plan and implement this new and exciting ministry.
 
We are currently seeking volunteers of all ages to participate in this Christ centered ministry. If you feel Jesus nudging and tugging at your heart to volunteer for this ministry, please contact the church office.
 
Our Prayer:
     O God, give each of us a heart like yours, full of compassion and love for the hurting people of our world.  Help us find ways to make a difference for all your children in need.  Amen
