Those In Need: While we love worship and Bible study and being together as Christians, we also have a heart for those who struggle in life. Hallowed Grounds Cafe
was founded in 2010, and offers weekly dinners every Tuesday night free
of charge in partnership with foodlifeline.org. We also operate an
in-house Food Bank every Thursday, and our Clothing Closet. Beginning 2016, SUMC has been serving as a Severe Weather Shelter
location in partnership with Kitsap County; homeless people have been
able to sleep in our facility on nights when the county's system is
activated during the winter.
SUMC is a sweet spot for seniors, and we seek to grow in our ministry
for today's young adults. Since 2016, we have been a part of Pivot Northwest,
a Lilly Endowment initiative to explore why millennials are largely
turned off by organized religion in America. If you are under the age of
40 and want to help build something new, there is an opportunity for
you with us!
