September 2018 Update
August was a busy month at Sunday Supper with over 700 meals served in four Sundays. Many thanks to all who helped with the meal on August 5th and a special thanks to the cooks who prepared a great meal and brainstormed how to be prepared to serve on time when the big ovens wouldn’t work. Thanks to John Scepura for coming in on a Sunday afternoon to rescue us and fix the ovens.
Meals in September will be prepared and served by Asbury United Methodist Church, New Hope Presbyterian Church, Emmanuel Presbyterian Church, The Episcopal Cathedral of Saint Paul and Millcreek Community Church. Due to the Koinonia Weekend, the meal will be served at the Episcopal Cathedral of Saint Paul on Sunday, September, 23. We are always grateful for all of the congregations who partner with us, but we are especially grateful for the partnership we have with the Cathedral of Saint Paul community as they host Sunday Supper on Koinonia weekends.
You are always welcome to come and help serve the meal on any Sunday. Please plan to arrive by 3:15 p.m. and stay until cleanup is complete at 6:00 p.m.. The food is important, but the time spent in conversation, helping to build relationship with our guests is very important. Please join us on a Sunday and enjoy a good time chatting and serving.
Sunday Supper is looking for volunteers to help with meal preparation and serving our guests in Knox Hall on Sundays. 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.
There is always a place for you at Sunday Supper. Volunteers from First Covenant and Our West Bayfront Neighborhood are needed to help in the kitchen and with the many other tasks of Sunday Supper. You are always encouraged to stop in and visit with our guests on a Sunday. Please sign up on the board in the Parlor to volunteer for a Sunday afternoon, and continue to pray for and financially support this ministry.
Donations to our weekly Sunday Supper program are accepted anytime at the FPCC church office at 814-456-4243. If you would like to volunteer for Sunday Supper, sign-up in the Parlor and/or to donate food items or to volunteer to help prepare and serve the meal, please contact Pat Tracy at 864-6118 or [email protected]. Volunteers are always needed to make this ministry possible.
Thank you for your continuous support of Sunday Supper.
God is Good. All The Time.
Joy and peace, Pat Tracy
