Grace Free Community Meal The Grace FCM is held the second Friday of each month, and during the pandemic was a take-and-go meal: drive-up or walk-up to the rear doors and receive your meal(s) in a bag to take with you. Beginning in April of 2022, we resumed having the meal inside some months, on a trial basis.
On Friday September 8, the Free Community Meal was hosted by Tracey Krause and funded by Thrivent. The group served 167 meals of homemade chicken pot pie, a roll, salad and a brownie.
The next Free Community Meal will be held on Friday, October 13 from 4:00 to 5:30 pm, with both dine-in and take-out options available. This meal is being hosted by Janene George and funded by Thrivent. The menu will be chili, rice, cornbread, applesauce and a dessert. If you would be willing to help with this meal, please sign up at this Sign-up Genius link: COMING SOON Thank you!
UPDATE: The current transition process to a hybrid meal will be an ongoing period of trial and error. Please be patient, as we want this to work out as much as you do. The monthly free community meal was hosted in the Fellowship Hall in April, May, and June. In July, August and September, the meal will be drive thru only. Hopefully for October, November, and December, we will serve inside again. Then in January, February, and March of 2024, the meals will be drive thru only. Stay tuned for updates!
If you have questions or would be willing to host an upcoming meal, please contact Pat Smack at email@example.com.
As people of faith, God calls us to help those whom Jesus called "the least of these." (Matthew 25:40) When Jesus fed the multitudes (the only miracle to appear in all four gospels), he didn't ask anyone to pay, to demonstrate worthiness, or even to prove their need. And as Christians - although we often come up short - we try to follow the way of Christ. That is why on the second Friday of each month, Grace hosts a Free Community Meal (FCM). At that time anyone and everyone is welcome to pick up a meal (or meals) and a friendly greeting. During this time of pandemic, the FCM is to-go and we ask that you please wear a mask when you come by. If you would like to know more about the Free Community Meal, or give a monetary donation, please email Pat Smack at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the church office.
