Mission Outreach

Haddonfield United Methodist Church is thrilled to be part of the army of God’s people working to share the love of Christ throughout the world. We are home to mission teams that serve missions in nearby Camden and the Jersey Shore and faraway Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. These teams help meet practical needs as well as introduce those they meet to Christ. We also support Steve and Gail Quigg, missionaries in the Congo region of Africa, with both financial resources and prayers as they help provide medical care via an aviation ministry.

We encourage all people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they serve a mission elsewhere in the world or actively participate in ministry here at home.

 

Some of our partners in mission include:

  • A Future with Hope Partners with the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) to repair and rebuild homes, communities, organizations and systems by strengthening community leadership, engaging neighborhood people, and releasing local assets in areas of New Jersey effected by Superstorm sandy.
  • Robins’ Nest is a private, non-profit children’s services organization dedicated to ensure the safety of children and enhance their well-being in a family setting. This is accomplished through a wide array of quality community-based services, which encourage and empower children to become responsible members of the community.
  • Respond Inc., is a non-profit created by community residents to enhance and promote the economic independence and general welfare of individual and families residing in Camden City and County.
  • The Neighborhood Center is a non-profit social service agency in Camden that strives to build relationships with individuals and families to earn the right to share The Gospel. Through child care, after school and summer enrichment programs, senior adults, a soup kitchen, and an emergency food bank, they minister to the physical and spiritual needs of the people in Camden.
  • Fellowship House is a non-profit organization committed to reaching the people of Camden with love of Christ. The children and youth of South Camden are served through an after school program, food and clothing distribution, summer programs, and Christmas gift donations.

  • United Methodist Homes mission is to provide quality and caring services to senior men and women in a Christian community.
  • Seeds of Hope Ministries is the umbrella organization for three ministries that have operated within the City of Camden, NJ for many years. South Jersey Aftercare, which has been in existence since 1998, is an ex-offender reentry ministry for men and women returning from prison. We seek to facilitate the transformation of prisoners and their reconciliation to God, family, and community through our weekly programs, transitional housing and most importantly, the power and truth of Jesus Christ. My Father’s Hands, an outreach ministry to people who find themselves on the streets of Camden (homeless, drug addicts, alcoholics, lost), has been serving people on the street since 2003. Our desire is that they will not only be clothed and fed, but that they will be receptive to the Good News of the Gospel. She Has A Name, which had its beginnings in 2005, is a specific outreach to the ladies who find themselves in bondage to drugs and eventual prostitution. We share practical care and the unconditional love of Christ with these women who walk the streets of inner city Camden.  Hope Thrift is another aspect of our ministry that exists to support the ministry in Camden. We have a furniture thrift store (and new mattresses) in Somerdale and our main store for clothing and items in Stratford. We also feel Hope Thrift is a beacon to our community. Please visit the store’s website at www.HopeThriftShop.com.  Through many volunteers they are able to reach out to the least, the last and the lost of Camden, NJ, with love, compassion and tangible help that comes in countless forms. Seeds of Hope consider it a privilege to care for individuals that the world would prefer to ignore. The mission and vision is to see lives changed by the Gospel for the glory of God.
