Due to the Ripley Chapel construction our church kitchen has lost a lot of space. So this month we thought we would ask individuals or families to make 10-15 sandwiches from home and then bring them to the refrigerator downstairs in the kitchen anytime this week between Thursday – Sunday.
Also, this month there are still opportunities to deliver sandwiches to the members of The Outdoor. Sunday afternoon at 1:30 a small group will leave FCCW & head to Harvard Square. There we will connect with the ministers of The Outdoor Church, and gather up some water, toiletries & socks which we will offer to those we encounter as we walk through Harvard & Central Squares in Cambridge. On our walk we will have the opportunity to engage the homeless, sometimes by doing something as simple as making eye contact, smiling as you hand them a sandwich, talking to them, or simply listening to what they have to say. Whatever your comfort level is your presence will be meaningful for all involved.
The Mission & Outreach Ministry hopes that you will prayerfully consider these opportunities to serve our neighbors whose bodies and souls need & deserve physical & spiritual sustenance.
If you can help please contact Lisa Loughlin or text 781-346-1241.
However you participate is wonderful and welcome. It is a terrific opportunity to show God’s love and help our neighbors in need.
