Fourth Sunday Community Meal
Each fourth Sunday of the month, Mt. Tam Church spreads out an old-fashioned church potluck for folks in our community who otherwise might not have a hot meal that day. Church members and community folks from all parts of Marin County are served and then sit down together for lunch and conversation. We're told our food is among the best served in the County! (At least, we like to think so!!)
Rotating Emergency Shelter Team (REST) Care
During the Winter months many Marin faith communities house and feed people without homes in the severe weather. Mt. Tam Church provides several Sunday night meals for the men who stay at Westminster Presbyterian Church.
Food Bank Ministry
Every Sunday the Mt. Tam Church congregation brings canned goods and non perishables for the Marin Food Bank which our children collect for the offering. Thousands of pounds of necessary food is given every year.
Every November, Mt. Tam Church hosts an old-fashioned, yet up-to-date Holiday Bazaar. Hand-made gifts, live music, children's activities, alternative giving opportunities and a fantastic home-made lunch help support the mission of the United Methodist Women.
Kids' Craft Nights - Imagine No Malaria
The children of the church gather for craft nights throughout the year to create handmade items to sell at our Annual Holiday Bazaar. The kids host their very own booth with their handmade items, raising money for "Imagine No Malaria." Proceeds benefit those in countries affected by malaria by providing mosquito nets, education on malaria prevention and other critical items.
Heifer Project Card Making
Each fall, Judy White organizes the children and adults of our congregation in a wonderful art project that serves families around the world. Church folks craft beautiful handmade cards, with holiday and nature themes, which are sold at the church bazaar and other events. The proceeds from the sales go to buy an animal through Heifer International, an organization which provides life-giving livestock for families in poverty in many countries. Last year, the congregation's art offerings bought a whole heifer plus several chickens.
