Summer Lunch Program
// Monday - Wednesday (12noon - 1pm)
2020 Dates: June 22 - August 19
There are many kids in the Mead school district who rely on a free or reduced lunch. As the school year comes to an end, teachers notice a sense of restlessness in students as the reality of not having lunch during the summer sets in.
For almost 10 years now, we have had the privilege to meet that lunch need by inviting youth and families into our building and sending teams of people into other nearby communities. From the beginning, the goal has been to display the love of Christ and build relationships with families in our area by meeting a tangible need.
Over the past couple of years, the ministry has expanded. Now, we are not only able to provide lunch, but have added a fun craft as well as a time to teach the Bible.
If you would like to be a part of this growing ministry, there are a few ways you can make a difference:
Come Enjoy Lunch with Your Family
On Monday - Wednesday from June 22 - August 19, bring your family to the back of the Youth Center. We will provide you with a sack lunch and you will have to the opportunity to fellowship with people you know and build relationships with others in our church family and community.
Join the Team
It takes many people for this ministry to continue and we are always looking for people with a heart to bless people to join the team. There are many ways that you can help in areas of food, crafts, teaching and delivery. If you would like to make a difference in the lives of people, follow the link below.
Pray and/or Make a Financial Contribution
One of the reasons that this ministry continues to grow is because of the generosity of people who continue to support it. If you are unable to come and participate in this year's Summer Lunch Program, but would still like to be a part, there are two ways:
There have been many times that it looked like the doors were going to close on this program. However, by the grace of God and through the prayers of people, the door remains open. Pray God would continue to use this outreach to introduce the saving love of Christ to families in our community.
Each year we are able to continue to provide food, crafts, and even Bibles to families in our community because of the generosity of people in our church family.
