FROM THE PASTOR’S PEN
There are many references to helping and taking care of the poor in the Bible. It seems to me that it was one of Jesus’ main objectives. I think that is what we are doing when we fill Operation Christmas Child boxes. That is what we are doing when we help a family or families at 14th and Chestnut. That is what we are doing when we serve our free meal every month. In October we served 84 guests. These folks come from different back grounds and are at different stages in their lives, but everyone needs and enjoys a good meal.
Our November lunch will again be on the fourth Monday. The menu is soup and sandwiches. That date is November 27, 2017. In December, we are doing something different. We will be serving a meal, but instead of it being on the fourth Monday, which is Christmas Day, we will be serving it on Monday December 11. We are going to be doing a full turkey dinner. The menu is turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans, rolls and probably a few other things.
Here is your invitation to come and help. We will need some extra people that day. If you would like to help on either or both of these dates, just come and join us. We have a good time and we are doing something that Jesus thought was very important. May God continue to bless us as we do what He has called us to do.
For the only cause that matters,
