What is this ministry about?
QSUMC has partnered with Mosaic United Methodist Church and a group called The Ice Angels. We help cook and serve a hot meal the second through the last Wednesday each month. Ice Angels is a group who have been serving meals and seeing to other needs of the homeless in Oklahoma City for years. Another group in Oklahoma City comes to the meal site twice a month and provides food and supplies for pets of the people in need who come for the meals.
Why are we involved?
There is a great need in Oklahoma for helping people who find themselves homeless. We started as partners with Ice Angels to help them with their ministry. Now now we are expanding to try to meet the needs of some of our homeless in the North Oklahoma City and Edmond areas.
How can I help?
Donations for our hygiene bags and non-perishable food items are always welcome. Gently used clean clothes and new socks are other things we can always use. We distribute bread from our Panera Bread ministry or use some of the bread for the meal we serve. If you would like to help in a more personal way then join us for meal prep, meal service or clean up every Wednesday except the first Wednesday of the month.
A Sign Up Genius is being used to indicate which parts of the Wednesday meal you would like to help with. Donations can be left at QSUMC Monday through Thursday from 9:00am to 4:00pm or contact one of the ministry coordinators for additional drop off times or questions on ways to help.
Where do I show up to help?
Meals are prepared starting the second Wednesday of the month through the last Wednesday of the month. For meal preparation, come to QSUMC 14617 N. Pennsylvania Oklahoma City at 10:00 am. Meals are served at Crossbridge church at 11th and Walker. Set up starts around 12:45 and we start serving around 1:00pm lasting for around 1 hour. We return to Quail Springs at about 2:30 for cleanup.
