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 provides 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 200 guests each week. Church partners in the Downtown Communities Ministries serve other days of the week.
We partner with Liberation Veteran Services to serve a hot dinner to homeless veterans of the 4th Sunday of each month.
How to Get Involved
- Volunteer at Thursday lunch
- Volunteer with veteran meal program
- Make donations of toiletries for lunch guests
