“The Gathering Table (formerly Children’s Memorial Church) is an integral part of support for the homeless community in their Northeast neighborhood. They serve meals to about 100 individuals on Wednesday mornings and Saturday lunches as well as providing other necessary services. Their kitchen is in need of some updating as appliances are outdated and operational funds are limited. First Lutheran, a significant sponsor and coordinator of the Saturday lunches, has started a fundraiser for a new commercial refrigerator for their kitchen, which will cost about $3,000. This is a worthy project and supported by your Church In The World Committee. If you would like to contribute to this fund, please make checks payable to St. James with “Gathering Table Refrigerator” in the memo field. If you have any questions, contact Norb Stracker or any member of the CITW Committee.”
Gathering Table Feeding —Our next time to serve at the Table will be February 23rd. Watch the bulletin for information on donating and serving.
