Grace Cafe

December 18, 5-6:30 pm

For the past 11 years, churches throughout Elmhurst have held Grace Cafes twice a month to serve dinner to anyone in our community who may be hungry or lonely. First Church’s only opportunity to serve Grace Café this year is coming up on Monday December 18. Once again we ask for your help as we welcome more than 100 of our neighbors for a special holiday meal and warm fellowship. Sign-up sheets to help provide ingredients, cook, set up, greet, serve, and clean up are by the Fellowship Table in Wesley Hall. All ages are invited to participate. For this holiday menu, we are asking not only for food items, but also for monetary donations so that we may shop for some of the necessary ingredients in quantities larger than we would ask anyone to provide.  Join us and help offer this meaningful service to our community.
