We Need your Help! Summer has come and the Sharing Bread Soup kitchen needs volunteers to help serve meals! First Lutheran has been providing and serving these meals on the second Wednesday of every month for years. During the program year the Confirmation youth take over but during the summer we need congregational help!
We need a group of 4 to 6 people to bring over the pre-made meal, set up the meal and serve it, and then clean up after. You’ll meet at First Lutheran at 4pm and head over to the Sharing Bread Soup Kitchen. After the meal and clean up you should be back to church around 7pm.
Please take a look at the dates and see if you can help out! Sign up by taking to Pastor Jordan or on the clipboard in the Narthex! July 14th , August 11th, September 8th
We also need people to sign up and make desserts again. Sign up sheet is located in the Narthex.
