How you can serve your community right now
Written by Brad Jenkins

One way we proclaim Jesus is by serving our community, and we have three ways you can do that now and in the coming months.

  • Our Soup Kitchen organizers need teams for the Soup Kitchen schedule. The organizers have five of the needed eight teams. They are specifically looking for a team for the second and fourth weeks of February, April, June, August, October and  December. They also need a team for the second week of March, May, July, September and November. The teams serve on Fridays at 11:30 a.m. The Soup Kitchen has been seeing as many as 20 guests in recent weeks, so the need is real!
  • Soup Kitchen loves to include homemade cookies as part of their service. You can provide them. Just place two or three in a zip bag that can be frozen and used as needed. Drop them off in the kitchen with a note that they are for Soup Kitchen.
  • First Pres will be serving dinner to guests of Open Doors, a shelter of last resort, the week of January 10-16 at the shelter’s location at the former Red Front Supermarket on Chicago Avenue.

Contact Pat Haden about any of these opportunities.
