Community Meals

mealOver 35 members have volunteered to help community meals the last Tuesday of each month. Our first meal in January, 2014 was the night of a winter snow storm, and still 15 people walked to the church to be greeted by cheerful hosts and a warm meal. Now we are serving as many as 120. If you would like to help prepare, or serve, or clean up, contact Linda Pulliam.  Donations of money are needed to keep providing this ministry. Help us continue the meals.
