Master's Table Soup Kitchen
Saturday, April 22, 8:15  AM  - 10:30  PM  
The Master's Table Soup Kitchen at 702 Fenwick Street will be staffed and sponsored by Saint Paul's Church volunteers Saturday, April 22. The Prep Team works from 8:15 - 10:30  AM . This is a great opportunity to get to know other parishioners while chopping, stirring, and preparing lunch. 
Please note a change for this ministry in 2017. Because this is an extremely gratifying experience, the Soup Kitchen has more servers than they need. Therefore, the Saint Paul's team will prepare lunch only, to give other groups an opportunity to serve. Since persons under age 18 are not allowed to work in the kitchen, this opportunity will now be limited to adults only. Contact Marilyn Grau for more information or to volunteer.
