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.
JOIN US to learn more about our local church Homebound Ministry called Hearts United Giving Service (H.U.G.S.). We will have a Breakfast from 9:15-10:15 a.m. on Sunday, October 22, for current H.U.G.S. members and interested guests (no requirement to join us). H.U.G.S. was created by our church in 2002 as a way to match our church volunteers and homebound members in a visiting partnership.
Kindly RSVP by Friday, October 20 to Chris Squier at 630-279-3375 or email@example.com.
