Grace Free Community Meal The Grace FCM is held the second Friday of each month, and has been 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, we will resume having the meal inside, on a trial basis.
On Friday March 10, a great crew of volunteers led by Barbara Cochrane made and distributed 225 meals of corned beef, cabbage, potato, bread, and brownies. Thank you to our volunteers for the work they put in cooking, packaging and handing out the meals. We couldn’t do any of these things without you!
The next Free Community Meal will be held on Friday April 14 from 4:00 - 5:30 pm, hosted by Kim Vaupel, Sandy Schantz, and their friends. The menu is turkey barbeque, macaroni salad, chips, and a dessert. It will be held in person in Fellowship Hall. and take-out meals will be available. Other volunteers may be needed; more details to follow.
We still need a host for July. If you would be willing to host a meal that month, please contact Pat Smack at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will have plenty of help!
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 email@example.com, or call the church office.
