What does it look like to love our neighbor? One of the ways we do this at Mission Bend United Methodist Church is by being in community with a nearby school, Holmquist Elementary in Alief ISD. Every weekend, over 200 children lack the food to sustain them from their Friday school lunch to their Monday school breakfast. By providing backpacks with enough food for the weekend to these 200 children, we show Christ’s love. You can help by sponsoring a child for $100 per semester, by showing up to help assemble the backpacks on Thursdays at either 1:00 or 6:30 PM, or helping to deliver the backpacks on Friday mornings at 8:30.
We also have a Kids Hope USA mentoring program. Currently, there are 11 students in our program and we strive to expand as the need is great. One hour a week could make all the difference in the life of a child.
