United Methodists believe that each of us is called to participate in the outreaching ministry of Jesus Christ. John Wesley described this in simple, practical terms: “Do all the good you can, in all the places you can, to all the people you can.” River Hills has a long history of supporting missions locally, nationally, and globally. Working together in Christ we can make a difference!
“Pairing Up” With MN FoodShare and 360 Communities
March is a big month for MN FoodShare and River Hills! This March we will team with MN FoodShare and 360 Communities to stock the local food shelves with baby formula, diapers and wipes to help our tiniest of guest at the local food shelves.
Feed My Starving Children
We participate in a South Metro food packing event. In 2015, our volunteers help pack cases of food that provided 2.5 million meals for hungry children. RHUMC volunteers donated $9,000+ for the event.
Habitat for Humanity
Twice a year we roll up our sleeves and get out the hammers and saws to help build new Habitat homes that provide stable housing for low-income families in the Twin Cities area.
Imagine No Malaria
River Hills’ has collected over $40,000 that supports this campaign.
