What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but do not have works? Can faith save you? If a brother or sister is naked and lacks daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and eat your fill,” and yet you do not supply their bodily needs, what is the good of that? So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead. – James 2:14-17 (NRSV)
The Outreach ministry of Broadway United Methodist Church focuses on sharing God’s abundance with those in need. We seek to be intentional, inclusive and engaged in working to eradicate poverty of mind, body, and spirit. We are committed to reaching out in our local community, across the country, and around the world to address issues such as:
- Hunger and food insecurity
- Living expenses
- Life skills
We are inspired by the social witness of Jesus, which calls on us to love kindness, do justice and walk humbly with our God. We support activities and programs that affirm each person as a whole, loved, and gifted human being. We prayerfully seek to emulate Jesus’ model of compassionate caring and justice, consistent with the Mission and Social Creed of the United Methodist Church. We try to faithfully respond to sensitive issues of social justice as reflected in a broad variety of activities and ministries which are selected or reaffirmed each year.
The Outreach Committee of Broadway United Methodist Church meets regularly each month and sponsors activities designed to help others year-round. For more information about the ministry contact our church office.
