Harvest of Hope
Ten years ago, Karen Kumpf, a member of the Christ Church congregation, had a vision for a food reclamation ministry to feed hungry people in our community. This vision turned into Washington County Harvest of Hope. Harvest of Hope has grown from the 12 original Christ UMC members that birthed the ministry to now a community-wide program that services multiple community meals and food pantries, offers community gardens, and works with local social services.
Christ Church is honored to provide a “home” for the Harvest of Hope Board and see many of our congregation still active in this vital ministry.
