We ARE Feeding God's People!
We seek to do the will of God in Montbello remembering:
A third time Jesus asked Peter, "Simon son of John, do you love me?" Peter was hurt that Jesus asked the question a third time. He said, "Lord, you know everything. You know that I love you." Jesus said, "Then feed my sheep." John 21: 17
Regardless of race, color, creed or religious background you are welcome to come and give your time to these ministries or just come to be fed!

The Urban Farm @ UC Montbello
This newest addition to the United Church of Montbello campus will be a place for animals such as goats and chickens to live in a learning enviroment for Montbello's children and other residents. It is a place where giving a few hours of volunteer time will help you learn more about sustainability, how to grow herbs and other plants, how to treat your soil and much more. Donna Garnett, Khadijah Haynes & the folks at Children's Farms of Colorado run this farm with compassionate care.
The United Church of Montbello works with various court appointed community service programs. We provide opportunities for young people and others to fulfill their community service hours by doing various tasks around the grounds and campus. If you are interested in community service please call the church office (303) 373-0070 and set it up with Pastor James Fouther, Jr.
