Open Arms Ministry


All told, there were about 35 students and several dedicated adult volunteers who brought food to a group of almost 100 homeless men and women at Hyde Park United Methodist’s Open Arms Ministry. Open Arms is a ministry that provides a nourishing meal, emergency assistance and an invitation to the homeless to worship with the congregation. Open Arms began in 2004 as an effort to serve the disenfranchised and marginalized men and women in the Hyde Park area.

We had a lot of fun while making a difference and showing dignity and respect to the homeless community in Hyde Park. Students cut bread, served food and shared a smiling face, all the while spending time with friends. It was a great morning. The smiles on the faces of the Open Arms guests said it all!
