Local Outreach

Sunday Supper

In collaboration with local faith communities, Sunday Supper provides a dinner every Sunday at 4:00 p.m. to our neighbors who need a nutritious meal and a safe place of acceptance. Aldersgate UMC volunteers serve dinner and provide groceries on the third Sunday of every month. Our guests include single people, seniors, and families who are struggling with finances, homelessness, or are simply in need of companionship.

Volunteer duties include food shopping, setup, food preparation, food service, and clean up. Each volunteer serves one to two hours, depending on the assigned job, and all volunteers must be over 13 years old.

Family Promise

Family Promise provides housing for families that are at risk of becoming homeless. Four times a year Aldersgate provides a week of shelter and meals for families in the Family Promise of Orange County program as they work towards their own stability and self-reliance. Through Family Promise AUMC is also supporting the House of Ruth, which will provide transitional housing and services for the Homeless. It is currently scheduled to open in 2022 and will be located in Tustin.
