For May


Mission of the Month for May

Church Under the Bridge

Church Under the Bridge is a church for the Homeless Community.  Church Under the Bridge began in the Spring of 1997.  The purpose was to not only deliver the Gospel message, but also to provide meals, donated clothing and hygiene items for those in need.

Here at Laurel Heights UMC, our dedicated Church Mice are currently providing sandwiches to the Homeless Community on the first Thursday of the month.  If you are interested in learning more about Church Under the Bridge, please visit their website https://cub-sa.org/.   If you are interested in becoming a member of the Church Mice Committee, please contact Laura Healy, at [email protected] or by phone 210-733-5156

Support the humanitarian response in Ukraine

The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), the humanitarian relief arm of Global Ministries, is in communication with partners in the region and actively
exploring the coordination of humanitarian response in Ukraine. Support UMCOR’s international disaster response efforts by making a gift to Advance #982450.

We are called to be the hands and feet of Christ in the world and have a responsibility to love and care for our neighbors.

Other Opportunities

In as much as ye have done it unto one of the least of these
my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
