ALTA WOODS FOOD PANTRY
"I was hungry and you gave me something to eat; I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink."
At Alta Woods Ministry isn't confined to four walls, we believe in sharing in the needs of our community, whether you worship with us or not. The food pantry is open on Thursdays from 10:00am-2:45pm and is closed for lunch from 12-1. Please bring your photo ID and proof of residence (a piece of mail or a bill with your address) and we will be happy to serve you!
GRAVY & GRACE
Food for Body and Soul
For the last 14 years Alta Woods has been serving those less fortunate in our community. Each week our host of Church volunteers work diligently to provide transportation and food for the needy. Known as "Gravy & Grace", we gather the homeless of Jackson to provide White Sausage Gravy with Biscuits and a Worship Service. Following worship, the outreach team distributes hygiene kits, a pair of socks, and bananas, among other things to the needy. Truly a Ministry for the Body and Soul, Gravy & Grace takes the love of Christ and fellowship of the Church outside the four walls.
FAITH DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS
Learning to Give Back
At Alta Woods United Methodist Church, we offer congregants of all ages a chance to participate by joining our wide range of ministries. Our Faith Development Programs allows current members or newcomers to be involved with our ongoing mission of spreading the love and teachings of Jesus Christ to our ever-growing community, and to give back by volunteering of their own time and efforts.
ALTA WOODS THRIFT STORE
"I was a stranger and you took me in; I was naked and you clothed me".
Since 2000, Alta Woods has provided the community with all the tools, wisdom, and resources they need to keep them grounded. One of those resources is our Thrift Store. The store exists to offer both congregants and members of the community alike, household and clothing resources that may not be otherwise available to them.
The Thrift Store is open on Thursday of each week from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
