Youth Serve at The Gathering
Sunday, November 19, 2017 | 10:15 am - 11:05 am
Our youth have the wonderful opportunity to serve lunch to The Gathering Street Church in Downtown Dallas on November 19th. The Gathering is an outdoor church for people who are homeless in the area. We go down several times a year and we usually prepare sack lunches to distribute after we worship with the congregation.
For Thanksgiving, we get to do something extra special. We will be serving a traditional hot Thanksgiving lunch and eating with the members of the church (the whole body of Christ enjoying Thanksgiving side by side). Since many of our friends who are homeless often ration their lunch to save some for dinner, our youth will also be preparing 125 sack dinners so they can have something for later too.
We are blessed beyond measure that St. Philip’s Cooking for a Crowd team is preparing the hot meal for us! We just need to take care of the sack dinners and then of course transport everything and serve.
We have several ways to serve with this event:
1. Donate Items Needed For Sack Dinners (Items may be dropped off early if you won’t be there for the event.)
2. Help Prepare The Sack Dinners (Prep will start at 10:15 am in the Youth Room and will be done by 11:05 am)
3. Go Down To Dallas to Worship & Serve Lunch from 11:45 am – 3:30 pm (In an effort to not overwhelm the members of The Gathering, the organizers have asked that we only bring 20 people down to worship and serve.)
Whether you help with donating supplies ahead of time, serve with meal prep the day of, or make the trip down to Dallas to worship & serve, we pray you will be blessed as you serve our brothers and sisters in Christ.
