Lunch Bunch

Somewhere along the way, we learn that there is nothing greater than to do something for others.

 Lunch Bunch Update


Thanks to the Men’s Group for partnering with the Lunch Bunch and providing the funding to replace the tablecloths in the Fellowship Hall.

Jean, Lorraine and Joanne Cook did a great job in finding a high quality fabric at a very reasonable price for ten tables ($131.00)  WOW!!!

They have cut the material, replaced the old tablecloths, and they look great.

Thanks Men’s Group and Lunch Bunch volunteers; very much appreciated.

A meal is the whole experience of getting together and sharing with friends;

it is more than food.  We have been blessed; we have seen our Church/Community lunch turn strangers into friends.  One of the most important things you can do on the earth is to let people know they are not alone.
