AHUMC is in a covenant ministry with Katherine Parker with the UMC mission in Nepal. We support her prayerfully and financially in her work in five areas of community transformation: education, health, peacebuilding, good governance and sustainable livelihoods. Learn more here.
Each year we help organize friends and neighbors to participate in the national Church World Service Crop Hunger Walk to help address hunger in the U.S. and around the world. This event also supports local organizations such as: Second Harvest Food Bank, Sacred Heart Community Service, and Martha's Kitchen.
When natural or man-made disasters strike, AHUMC responds with special directed financial offerings as well as contributions to the United Methodist Committee on Relief. We also assist directly locally with donations and volunteer work.
Members and friends of AHUMC participate in events and activities of the United Women of Faith (formerly UMW). As it fosters spiritual growth and develops leaders, United Women in Faith seeks to improve the lives of women, children and youth in the United States and internationally. United Women in Faith advocates on peace and justice, economic inequality, education, the rights of children, human rights and farm workers' rights.
United Methodists are disciples of Jesus Christ who continue to live lovingly and justly as servants of Christ by helping to heal the sick, feed the hungry, care for the stranger, and free the oppressed: being a compassionate presence, and working to support social structures that are consistent with the gospel.
At Almaden Hills UMC, we use the term “Outreach” for or work in our neighborhood and city; and “Mission” for projects around the nation and the world. But many efforts blend local and broader efforts, such as our annual Crop Hunger Walk – read more on the Outreach page.
