Serve Homeless Neighbors

 "...I was a stranger, and you welcomed me..."  Matthew 25:35

At PCUM, you can provide hospitality and tangible help to homeless neighbors in two active, "hands-on" ministries:


Sign up to serve at PCUM's

"7th Street Bistro" Newark Meals Program

(the third Saturday of each month)
Four volunteer servers assemble lunches and interact with guest from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Other PCUM volunteers provide food and refreshments for (approx 70) guest lunches.
PCUM joins in partnership with several area Presbyterian congregations to serve at this Newark-based hunger ministry. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the church's volunteer-driven program enables you to partner with other volunteers safely to prepare "take-away" lunches to 50-75 hungry neighbors  and families on the 3rd Saturday of each month.  This is a rewarding and meaningful experience for all!
