Green Street UMC–Wayne C. Barrett Steward Leader Award
Green Street UMC,HastingsWayne C. Barrett Steward Leader Award Recipient Green Street UMC is focused on providing both physical and spiritual bread to the community. They offer a community meal on Tuesday evenings that reaches the “unchurched”. Hundreds of people each week come to the church for food and other assistance. They provide weekend food to approximately 60 school students. The church spent almost twice as much on food in 2022 than 2021. How do they find the financial resources to do this?

The church celebrates and gives thanks for generosity instead of asking for money. Green Street UMC exemplifies what being a Outstanding Steward Leader means. We are proud to recognize their spirit of generosity and support their vision of providing Bread to the hungry. Congratulations!
