Welcoming the Stranger:
“Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked to us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?”
– Luke 24:13-35
Emmaus is our lunch ministry, which takes place on Thursdays. We are one of five Downtown Community Ministry (DCM) churches that provide a weekly meal to anyone in need, as we have been doing for more than 25 years. In the spirit of “welcoming the stranger,” we serve approximately 150 guests each week.
We also partner with Liberation Family Services to provide and serve a hot dinner to homeless veterans at their Hull Street location.
How to Get Involved
- Volunteer with the Thursday lunch program
- Volunteer with the veterans meal program
- Donate toiletries for our lunch guests
