SOCIAL & SPIRITUAL SERVICE
ST. NICK'S FOOD SHARE
Join us on Saturday afternoons in the lobby to take part in our Food Share program. The severe impacts of the pandemic showed a clear need for a pooling of resources in order to sustain the livelihood of our families. What began as as a way to help feed a dozen church families during COVID has evolved into Casa Maria - a sacred space that creates community in the name of Christ. Through the strong partnerships we have established with local nonprofits and community leaders, our food share has grown from a piecemeal endeavor into a fully robust and quickly growing church support system. This ministry is now a well known place throughout the Twin Cities where people come to pick up food, clothes and personal care items. We are currently distributing over 500 pounds of food per week, helping feed several hundred people monthly from across the metro area.
Come early to pick up food via truck or car, stay to set up and organize food and other supplies for distrbution. Remain later to help pack up the leftovers. Whenver you come, we would love for you to take items home for yourself and your loved ones.
Dates and times TBD
In partnership with Hennepin Healthcare, St. Nicholas has hosted health clinics. These clinics serve not just our congregation, but anyone who signs up for them. These clinics are a great way to cut through the bureaucracy and bring much needed medical care and resources to people who need it.
We have organized flu vaccination clinics and COVID-19 vaccination and booster clinics. We are deeply grateful for our relationship with Hennepin Healthcare and their commitment to serving our community.
Volunteers are needed to organize and staff these events!
Fridays, 2 pm, via Zoom
This informal group meets each week to discuss the Gospel lesson for the upcoming Sunday. Conversations include what people heard in the Gospel, their reactions to it, and a sharing of what's going on in their lives. Membership is not restricted to church members!
