So grateful to Troy and Tina Box for donating their carport at Light on the Hill and for our Volunteers In Mission Team Members, Brad, Ray, Rusty and Sangrid for building sides and doors to the carport! This will give us a storage shed for storing our KFUMC Disaster Trailer along with tools, ladders and other supplies. If you would like more information about disaster response, please contact Beth at email@example.com
Do you like people? Do you have the gift of hospitality?
We need help with special events and retreats throughout the year. You would be doing things like serving food or washing dishes. It's a lot of fun and a great way to share the love of Christ!
Do you love to cook or bake?
We have a wonderful team of unpaid servants that would love for you to join them.
We have a great time together as we serve!

Kerrville First United Methodist Church’s Food4Kids program provides food on the weekends for children experiencing food insecurity from our neighboring school, Nimitz Elementary. Other churches in our community have also adopted local schools in our county to be a blessing! KFUMC is currently helping almost 60 students and their families who do not have enough nutritious food to sustain them throughout the weekends. Many families depend on breakfast and lunch for their children at school and when school is not in session, like on weekends, it provides a hardship for the family. Our awesome unpaid servants help with the shopping, packing, delivering and distributing of the food to make this program possible. Food4Kids is a food relief ministry connected with our Mustard Seed Pantry. Thank you for supporting Food4Kids!
Thank you to Bryant Williams for his generous gift of a golf cart to our outreach ministry! This will help with providing accessibility for our neighbors with mobility challenges to all of our outreach ministries.

I’m sure you have heard by now of the outpouring at Asbury University over the last two weeks. What started as a few students staying after a worship service to continue to pray grew into an awakening that saw thousands travel to Kentucky to be a part of it! No bright lights, no famous Christian musicians or renowned speakers. Just simply, praying to God for a new awakening of His people and His Spirit to pour out over all creation. So simple, yet so powerful.

On Wednesdays and Thursdays at Mustard Seed Food Pantry, many unpaid servants give their love and time behind the scenes bagging non-perishables for Monday morning sharing with our community. Thankful for these servant hearts!

"Kerrville food pantry hosts mass distribution event"
Usually, the group provides 12,000 pounds of food per month to the community. Monday, they received almost 64,000 pounds of food from the San Antonio Food Bank.
KERRVILLE, Texas — Unemployment has not discriminated due to population size.
Northwest of San Antonio, in Kerr County, more families are looking for resources to meet their needs.
A food pantry in Kerrville is hoping to help hundreds of families in need.
“It’s people helping people, neighbors helping neighbors,” said Beth Palmer, the Outreach Coordinator for Kerrville United Methodist Church and Light on the Hill.
The ministry hosted their first mass food distribution Monday. Volunteers from several Kerrville churches and groups lent a hand.
“We don’t want anyone to be hungry in this time,” said Palmer.
Usually, the group provides 12,000 pounds of food per month to the community, but they received almost 64,000 pounds of food from the San Antonio Food Bank to feed even more families.
Midweek Mission Moment 5/11/22
Some of us have big buts (the one “t” variety, not the other kind). By that, I mean we live in constant emotional and relational tension because we live in the land of but.
• I know my BFF didn’t mean to be a jerk, but …
• I know my spouse isn’t perfect, but …
• I know my son is trying to change, but …
• I know my boss didn’t mean to wound me, but …
Sadly, we’ve created a “yeah, but” world that is killing us. It’s robbing us of joy and creating unnecessary tension in our relationships. Worst of all, it’s setting us up to love conditionally.
The second we add a “but,” we add a condition or an excuse. We are saying to others, “I know the right thing to do, but my choice to do the right thing is subject to your choice to do the right thing.” We rationalize our half-hearted love and acceptance of others based on their actions.
Stay tuned to the latest LOTH news, articles, events, and community happenings!
