Community Meal

The ESUMC soup kitchen has grown beyond simply serving a meal as a Soup Kitchen to developing richer relationships with our guests as we host a community meal. This has taken outstanding collaboration within our congregation, the local business community, and other churches. East Stroudsburg United Methodist Church has been called a “safe place” as we have all learned to develop mutual trust. Everyone is important to keeping a community alive and well. If you would like to help in any way, please contact Ana Price at or call the church office (570 421-3280).
