Help Us Love and Care for Our Neighbors
Jesus taught us: "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me."

Granite Creek Hunger Ministry — Thank You
Each year, from November through March, PUMC makes Esther Hall available on Saturday mornings so a hearty, home cooked meal can be served to the low income folks in the Prescott area. The meal is prepared and served by Granite Creek Hunger Ministry volunteers, 16 of whom are members of PUMC. We open up Esther Hall at 7 am so those guests without shelter can come in from the cold and start to warm up. (The area shelters usually require their guests to leave by 7 am which is often the coldest time of the day/night.) Guest who arrive early help with the setup, can enjoy coffee and a snack, play cards, converse with other guests and volunteers, read, and/or check out the clothing that is made available (without charge) each week by one of our volunteers. The main meal, preceded by prayer, is served at 11:00 am. Many of our guests continue to tell us it’s the best meal they have all week. Following the meal, some of the guests stay to assist with cleaning and stacking the tables/chairs, sweeping the floors, wet mopping spots and removing garbage. Our goal every Saturday is to leave Esther Hall (and the attached bathroom) clean and ready for Sunday’s coffee hour and
From Matthew we read, “For I was hungry and you gave me something
to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a
stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me.”
Each Saturday our church puts those words into action as we reach out to those in our community who struggle to make ends meet.
Thank you for your continuing support and compassion,
Carol and Jim Lark

Prescott United Methodist Church is truly blessed to have so many committed volunteers who provide one-on-one confidential, Christian caregiving to our congregation and community. If you or someone you know is feeling overwhelmed with the challenges of life and could benefit from a listening ear and some distinctively Christian comfort while working through those challenges, please speak with Patti Blackwood at the church (778-1950) and see if a Stephen Minister might be able to provide assistance.
