St. Barnabas is dedicated to reaching out to others on a local, national, and international level to serve the needs of humanity in the name of Christ. We sponsor a number of activities ranging from supporting a local Women’s Shelter and Food Pantry to collecting Alms for the Native American Heritage Association, UNICEF, and Doctors Without Borders. We are a covenant church of “Bread for the World”, host several 12-Step groups, and are also founding members of the Midnight Run, which feeds and clothes the homeless in New York City.
You are invited to help extend Christ’s love to other by joining in our efforts.
First Nations Kitchen is primarily a justice-focused, Gospel-based ministry. Its primary intent is to provide food to indigenous people who would not otherwise have access to high-quality, fresh organic food in an environment of radical hospitality and cultural empowerment. While FNK makes full use of its relationship with the Twin Cities Coop Partners (free organic vegetables, fruits, and dairy) it now desires to deepen its ministry by engaging its guests and volunteers in the production of its own food. It is hoped that the garden will serve as a neighborhood gathering place, a chance to build deeper relationships with guests and volunteers, provide an opportunity for traditional harvest ceremonies, and bring indigenous people together to learn ancestral methods of growing their own food. First Nations’ Kitchen is a ministry of All Saints’ Episcopal Indian Mission in Minneapolis. and has been serving healthy, organic, traditional indigenous food in a welcoming, family environment every Sunday evening since November 2, 2008.
