Steps in Faith Community Meal
Thank you to everyone who has helped us in providing for the Wednesday night community meals in the way of monetary and food donations!! Our need is still great as we continue to not receive enough food from Broome Bounty to provide a full meal. Recently there have been 65 to 100 community members in attendance, including 16 to 25 children. We have seen a large rise in the number of children and families that are coming to the Wednesday night dinners. Some people have asked what items we are particularly in need of, the following is a list of items that we purchase regularly: coffee, tomato sauce, #10 cans of vegetables (six are used per meal, pasta, instant mashed potatoes, packaged drinks. Please feel free to call Pat at 724-3894 if you have any questions.
We have a need for a volunteer to dust the parlor, coffee house and narthex. Johnson’s maintenance is contracted to clean floors, rugs and bathrooms, window sills and dusts window sills as a courtesy to Tabernacle.
Tabernacle’s mission giving for the year has been divided into 5 seasons as represented by the starfish: food, shelter, prisoners, health and education.
