Pastor Molly Lorden
Hi, my name is Molly Lorden and I am the Associate Pastor and Director of the Community Hub at NHUnited Church, a neighborhood church in Normal Heights where we firmly believe that there is always space at the table for you. Our Community Hub has a new initiative centered around combatting nutrition insecurity, an issue that the San Diego Hunger Coalition recently stated affects 1 in 3 San Diegans, while also reuniting our neighborhood post social isolation. This new initiative, called “Neighborhood Social,” will include a delicious dinner from our amazing local restaurants, free of cost. Partnering with groups such as the San Diego Fridge Project to extend the reach of our Community Fridge, Next Steps, which provides drop in social service hours in the neighborhood, and SD Workforce Partnership, which connects people to jobs and other workforce development resources, the socials will also provide space for people to learn about resources in the community, and build partnerships of their own. And for everyone attending, the Neighborhood Social provides a fun environment to meet your neighbors, enjoy live music, and have an all around great time. As we come out of a season in which we have had to remain isolated from one another, there is a need to reconnect with our neighbors, and we believe these socials can be a part of that work. Will you find your seat at the table and partner with us?
