Kitchen and Dinner Team Update
The Kitchen and Wednesday Dinner teams hope you are having a great summer. Time flies and it won’t be long before Wednesday dinners are back in full swing. In preparation for that, the teams have taken advantage of quiet kitchen time and begun some purging, cleaning, and reorganization.

Please note that plates, napkins and silverware are now located under the serving line with extras in the pantry. Shelf signs and labels are being developed to ensure there is a place for everything and that volunteers can easily and quickly put everything back in its place after use. The goal is to make it easier for everyone to help keep kitchen space clean, tidy, and friendly for all who use it. 

Lastly,  volunteers are still needed  to help with Wednesday dinner planning each week; volunteers are vital to keeping the dinner program going. Please consider helping with this important task so dinners can continue during the school year. Contact Pastor Reggie if you are interested. Thank you!
