First Meal is our Sunday morning ministry that seeks to offer physical and spiritual nourishment to whomever walks through the doors, regardless of social or financial class or background. It’s a reality that too many persons in our community are familiar with hunger. It’s a constant companion that accompanies them in their search for housing and work. This ministry offers a place of community as well as a hot meal.
We launched First Meal on February 7, 2010. What began as a small, monthly ministry has now grown into a partnership with other United Methodists in our community to serve any who come through our doors. One of our volunteer coordinators said, “My love for our guests has grown by tenfold. What pleasure it gives me to serve others.”
Donations of complete pancake mix, pancake syrup, and canned fruit are always welcome in this effort to provide a meal to start the day. We also accept monetary donations to purchase bacon, sausage and eggs.
Your donations of soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, combs, deodorant, shampoo, and other personal hygiene items will be available to the attendees of First Meal at the necessity table.If you’ve never experienced the hands-on mission and ministry of First Meal, consider volunteering with us. Contact Rev. Jessica Wright for more information.
