Queen Anne UMC supports the following ministries with our time and our treasure:
Trinity United Methodist Church, Ballard’s Saturday Soup: Every month a team from QAUMC heads up to Ballard to make a meal in support of Trinity UMC’s Saturday Soup; sometimes serving just a couple of dozen people, sometimes feeding well over 100.
Sanctuary at Saint Mark’s: QAUMC is a “spoke” of support to the hub of Saint Mark’s work in sheltering and providing hospitality to people at risk of deportation. Following the biblical mandate to welcome the stranger and love our neighbor, we work with Saint Mark’s and Casa Latina as well as the Church Council of Greater Seattle and the City of Seattle.
Operation Nightwatch: Providing spiritual care and direct services to downtown Seattle’s homeless population. You can support them in providing housing for$7.94 per day.
Queen Anne Farmers Market Gleaning Ministry: During the summer, members and friends of QAUMC collect fresh produce from the Queen Anne Farmers Market. We make this produce available to the Queen Anne Food Bank and The Church of Mary Magdalene. If you are interested in volunteering to collect produce this summer, whether for one Thursday or regularly throughout the summer, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
HomeStep, a transitional housing program, provides housing for up to two years. Administered by the Compass Housing Alliance, QAUMC provides an apartment in our parsonage for a parent and a child to received stable, caring, safe housing.

A pair of United Methodist orphanages in Lubumbashi, Democratic Republic of Congo. One serves boys and the other girls.
United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR): The United Methodist relief aid organization. UMCOR is working in more than 80 countries worldwide, including the United States. Our mission, grounded in the teachings of Jesus, is to alleviate human suffering—whether caused by war, conflict or natural disaster, with open hearts and minds to all people.
Queen Anne Helpline: Providing direct services to people in financial crisis (zip codes 98109 and 98119).
Mary’s Place/The Church of Mary Magdalene: Seattle’s congregation and supportive services for homeless and formerly homeless women.
UNICEF (a children’s ministry): All people are called to be in service to neighbors near and far; this includes children. Our children, both preschool and church children, participate every year in the UNICEF Trick-or-Treat collecting money for UNICEF along with treats for themselves. Over the past couple of years, our children have raised over $200 for UNICEF. Combined with collections from other children around the world has totaled over $167 million (yes, million) dollars since its inception.
