First Meal is a free breakfast served each Sunday morning in the Monroe Gym to whomever walks through the doors, regardless of social or financial class or background. First Meal begin in February 2010 serving the first Sunday of the month and moved to being a weekly meal in August 2010. This form of ministry gives people a place of community. Not only will we provide food, but also a small worship service. It is not only the food that makes a difference, but the spirit of hospitality and compassion that is a gift of God’s Spirit.
Donations of complete pancake mix, pancake syrup, and canned fruit are always welcome in this effort to provide a nourishing and healthy meal to start the day. Other non-perishable breakfast items to jelly, honey and granola bars will add variety to the meal. We will also accept monetary donations to purchase bacon, sausage and juice.
Your donations of soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, comb, deodorant, shampoo, & other personal hygiene items will be available to the attendees of First Meal.
This monthly meal is based on Breakfast at the Heights, a mission starting at Floral Heights UMC, Wichita Falls. The concept was brought to the Mission Team by one of our youth, Drew Marshall. As Drew stated in his proposal to the Youth Council and later to the Mission Team, “First Meal would be a step in fulfilling our mission to shine God’s light, by helping both the physical and spiritual needs of our neighbors.”
And, of course, you are welcome to eat breakfast at First Meal, too. It is for everyone!
