Cooking For Christ
The Mission's Community Kitchen serves lunch Monday through Saturday 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.. Your church or ministry group can work with the Kitchen staff to plan, prepare, and serve a meal. It could be done as a one time event, or you could commit to a regular schedule (once a week/month, biweekly, etc.).
This is often a wonderful activity for small group ministries (be they adult or youth groups). It gives group members the chance to participate in a hands on project that has direct benefits for our neighbors in need. At the same time is is an amazing tool for group leaders as they work to teach that the Gospel is not just words but a continual call to compassionate action in the world.
