“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, . . .” Matthew 25:34-35a
Each Wednesday Night that we meet for dinner, 32 extra meals are prepared to feed the homeless women and children staying in the Contact Ministries shelter. When a month has five Wednesdays, on the fifth Wednesday, an additional 32 meals are prepared for the adult men and women’s shelter, Helping Hands.
When we do not have a Wednesday Night Dinner, the meals still need to be prepared and delivered to the shelters. We will not be serving Wednesday night meals during the months of June, July and August, with the exception of July 20, and need your help for those Wednesday nights. Will you, your family, your Sunday School class, or small group help feed the homeless?
The dates meals need to be prepared and delivered are: June 1, 8, 15, 22, 29; July 6, 13, 21; and August 3, 10, 17, 24, and 31. An extra 32 meals are needed on June 29 and August 31, which are the fifth Wednesdays in June and August.
If you would like to help but find yourself financially challenged at this time, the benevolence budget has sufficient financial resources for this ministry. Your family or group can be reimbursed to the amount of $75 per week if you could prepare and deliver the meals to the shelter.
