The closet is open on the first Saturday and the third Tuesday each month from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. The service is for families who are in need of personal hygiene items and cleaning items for the home.
The closet was begun through a Matthew 25 grant of $2,500 from the North Central District. These funds were made possible with the apportionment gifts of United Methodist churches throughout the Iowa Annual Conference.
For more than 150 years the Hampton congregation has played a vital role in making and maturing disciples of Jesus Christ who transform the world as bearers of God’s good news. Building on their vibrant past, they strive to be a dynamic and welcoming place of worship for the sake of future generations of Christians.
They believe that, like all United Methodist people, they have calling to live as faithful followers of Jesus Christ. “To fulfill this obligation,” they note on their website, “we reflect critically on our biblical and theological inheritance, striving to express faithfully the witness we make in our own time.”
