Bring something to share: salad, dessert, fruit, veggies. We will provide the "fixings", drinks, plates/cups/utensils, etc. To help in this venture, email Jessica Tusing at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our next BBQ will take place September 7.
Many thanks to ALL who helped with our Community Supper this past Friday.
As this ministry grows and we reach out in Christian love and hospitality to those who are struggling to make sense of life, we will need MANY to help. Remember that we engage in this ministry every 2nd Friday of the month. Start thinking now how you can be a part.
