Many thanks to all of you who brought pies and or volunteered to cook and serve the meal on Easter Sunday. It is a blessing to know that I can leave town to be with my family and the good people at FPCC will step up and make Sunday Supper happen.
In May, FPCC will once again serve the meal on Sunday, May 26. Watch for bulletin announcements and watch for Pat with her clipboard to sign up for donating cakes or to volunteer to serve that day.
Other churches and organizations who are providing meals in May are Emmanuel Presbyterian Church, Gannon’s OPEN group and Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church.
For more information, or to volunteer, contact Pat Tracy 814 864-6118 or [email protected] or ollow this link to sign-up: http://www.eriesundaysuppers.org/webcal/month.php
After two months of Sunday Supper bouncing around to neighborhood churches due to Koinonia and Our Neighbors Place using Knox Hall, the ministry returns home to FPCC for the spring, summer and fall seasons. Thank you to the Cathedral of Saint Paul and the First United Methodist Church for providing the space, meals and volunteers that allow us to consistently feed those experiencing food insecurity when our space is not available.
Easter is April 21st this year, and Tim and I will be out of town celebrating with our family, therefore, I am seeking someone to oversee the meal preparation on that day. We will keep the menu simple with ham and scalloped potatoes, and I will do all of the shopping ahead of time. This ministry would require you to arrive at 2:30 to have the food prepared and ready to serve at 4:00. You will be done by 6:00 p.m.. Also, we have a few Sunday Supper guests who are experienced in the kitchen who love to come in and help prepare food when FPCC is providing the meal. If there is no one to oversee food preparation, we will have to cancel Sun-day Supper for Easter Sunday.
On Easter, I would like to serve pie for dessert, so I will need fifteen people to donate a pie that can be left in the kitchen when you come to worship on Easter Sunday. Additionally, about 12 – 15 volunteers are needed from 3:15-6:00 to help serve the meal.
If you are available to help in any of these ways, please contact me at 864-6118 or [email protected] Joy and peace ~ Pat Tracy
Have you served a meal at Sunday Supper recently? A few extra hands are usually needed on Sunday afternoons from 3:15 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. to help prepare and serve dinner to those who are food insecure in downtown Erie. You are encouraged to look at your calendar and choose 3 or 4 Sundays throughout the year program to help be a blessing to others and, in addition, to meet people from other congregations and Gannon students who come to serve the meal.
Sunday Supper needs volunteers to help with meal preparation, and greeting and serving our guests in Knox Hall. If you can volunteer, contact Pat Tracy (contact information is below) so that she has an idea how many volunteers she has to work with on any given Sunday. About 20 volunteers are needed to prepare and serve the meal to our guests. The time commitment is from 3:15 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Sundays.

Volunteers are always needed to make this ministry possible.
Thank you for your continuous support of Sunday Supper.
God is Good. All The Time.
