Hundreds accept the challenge to serve our neighbors for a Churchwide Day of Service
650. That's the number of people who joined HPUMC on Saturday, April 13 in a churchwide day of service for our local partners around Dallas.
Because of their generosity, 575 people were served a hot meal at Austin Street Center and the Stewpot, more than 23,000 meals were packed through Rise Against Hunger and Crossroads Community Services, massive amounts of clothing donations were sorted and organized for our neighbors around Dallas, over 1,000 Easter eggs were stuffed for preschool children through Child Care Group, and much more.
"The best thing for me about being a part of the Highland Park United Methodist Church family is the generosity of its people and its never-ending goal to wake up every day and to serve those who are less fortunate and try to reach out in the name of Christ in any way that we can," says HPUMC Senior Minister, Rev. Paul Rasmussen.
