ABOUT OUR CHURCH
Temple United Methodist Church
Located at 65 Beverly St. in beautiful San Francisco, Temple UMC is a uniquely diverse and loving community, open to all. We love Jesus, follow a liberal Wesleyan theology and believe that God adores us all and asks us simply to love God and our neighbor in response. Our ministries involve living out our love for God and our brothers and sisters in San Francisco and throughout the world. We invite you to become a part of our growing community, and we look forward to meeting you!
MEET OUR STAFF
Temple feeds 400 families a week at our food pantry, Wednesday afternoons 4-6:30 PM.
We receive our food from the San Francisco Food Pantry 2-3 in the afternoon and our wonderful volunteers prepare it to be picked up safely by our patrons. We wear gloves, masks, maintain safe spacing, wash our hands and everything else often!
If you are hungry or know of someone who is, please send them to 65 Beverly Street on Wednesday afternoon and we will see to it that they get food.
We are all in this together. No one needs to be hungry in San Francisco.
We Need Volunteers!
If you are under 60, have your own safe mask, and would like to volunteer we would love a little extra help! Many of our regular volunteers are over 60 and have been asked to stay home.
Celebrate divine goodness and the inherent beauty of creation in our current series based on Dr. Wendy Farley’s book, ‘Beguiled by Beauty: Cultivating a Life of Contemplation and Compassion.’
An early 6th-century theologian described God as “beguiled by beauty.” The Creator was lured by a longing for beauty and so set in motion a world of immense diversity and goodness. We were made for this Divine Goodness.
We were made inherently worthy, not by our “doing,” but by our simply being. All things are beautiful–not by a standard of “pretty” as seen by our eyes, but by an essence of sacred worth that is sensed by the spirit. This is the root and heart of compassion and justice. In this worship series, we will dwell with the God of Divine Goodness, deeply in love with us, and practice ways to return that love as we fall more deeply in love with creation and with one another.
