"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me."

Matthew 25:35 NIV

Outreach

Meal Ministry

Each Sunday, following worship, the members of St. Mark's UMC in the French Quarter, along with her partners, provide a meal for those in need. The heart of this ministry is one that reflects the heart of Jesus when He looked upon the masses and was moved deeply with compassion. St. Mark's, in harmony with her generous meal ministry partners, looks upon those with whom we serve with deep compassion.
