Service Sunday (Second Sundays): Feed the Homeless

Service Sunday makes 200 sack lunches for the homeless served by the Union Gospel Mission of Tarrant County. This fun & energetic ministry welcomes all of any age to be involved – we really do have jobs for everyone! Join in on the second Sunday at noon, and work for 30 minutes to fight hunger in Tarrant County! Childcare is available.

Every second Sunday…

We meet at noon the second Sunday of every month to make lunches for the homeless. There are jobs for everyone, young and old. It feels so great to help those in need and answer Jesus’ call to be servant leaders:

For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home.
~Matthew 25:35

Be an Early Bird!

We always need folks who can help set up beforehand to set out supplies for the noon packing. To be an early bird, please contact servicesunday@stmartininthefields.org.

Looking for Drivers

Want to help bring the lunches to Union Gospel Mission? We are always looking for those willing to take the lunches down to the folks at Union Gospel Mission. Union Gospel Mission is located at 1321 E Lancaster Ave, Fort Worth, TX 76102.

Directions & Map

Contact servicesunday@stmartininthefields.org if you are able to help out.

SunButter

We use sunflower seed butter instead of peanut butter to make our “pbj’s.” We want to make sure that anyone served at Union Gospel Mission can enjoy a sandwich, even with a peanut or tree nut allergy. We also want to keep our facility nut-free for anyone with nut allergies to stay safe! We would love donations of any sunflower seed butter, which can be found locally at Sprouts and Tom Thumb or Walmart, or bought online.

Other donations

Your donations make such a difference! Our ongoing needs are for:

  • water bottles
  • Nutri-Grain, Rice Krispies treats or granola bars
  • grape jam/jelly
  • baked/store bought cookies
  • Sunbutter
  • decorated lunch bags (you can pick up a packet to decorate in the back of church)

Decorate some lunch bags

Decorated lunch bags give a layer of love to the meal we provide, and it’s one of the many things that all ages can do to support this ministry. Pick up a pack of bags near the red double doors in the church sanctuary, decorate them, and bring them back before Service Sunday!
