Calling all Cooks and Bottlewashers
Our Food Service Ministry Team will resume delighting our hungry Wednesday night participants this school year. We are blessed with great cooking, as well as serving and cleaning talent, in our congregation. All members who enjoy good food and good fellowship are invited to join us by volunteering one Wednesday dur­ing the fall semester. Food service will be from 5:30-6:40 p.m. each Wednesday from September 5 through November 28. We have a full range of positions available from skilled to unskilled (from cooks to servers to dishwashers).
