Homeless Ministry

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

Throughout the past forty years, FUMC been deeply committed to serving those most vulnerable in our city. Service to our community is in our church’s DNA. Every Sunday morning for many years, we have provided a meal, coffee, clothing and hygiene items for our unhoused brothers and sisters. In October of 2017, we expanded our efforts to serve those in need by purchasing a mobile shower unit, including six shower stalls. Now, every week we are able to provide clean showers along with breakfast, coffee, and hygiene items for our unhoused neighbors Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. In partnership with Feed My Sheep of St. Philips Episcopal Church, we also provide meals on Wednesday mornings as well.

Annual Foot Washing

In the spring, FUMC hosts a “Foot Washing” in honor of the act of service that Jesus offered to his disciples. On a Saturday, we welcome our homeless brothers and sisters into the church for their feet to be washed. Podiatrist students from Barry University come to attend to the feet needs of each person, as well as physician assistant students from Miami Dade College to provide health screenings to all. We are always in need of supplies as we aim to provide a new pair of shoes to each of of clients at this event. Last year nearly 300 people were served. It is one of the most anticipated events of our church’s year as it reflects with such clarity our role as servant to the community of Downtown Miami.
