MPLC’s Open Table Is Growing
MPLC’s Open Table meal ministry is growing! Last weekend, 80 guests joined us for an Italian dinner and amazing desserts. Fellowship Hall was full of laughter and conversation. All of this is made possible by nearly 50 volunteers who set up, bake cakes, serve, do dishes & clean up. The volunteer sign up is available for the next meal – Sunday, March 17.
Each month MPLC members also support Open Table by donating ingredients and supplies needed.
There are two ways to make these donations:

  • Shopping lists are posted in the narthex each month. Members can pick up a list, shop for the item(s) and bring the items to church by the date noted.

  • There is also an Amazon.com shopping list which contains supplies and pantry items needed for Open Table. Items can be ordered and shipped directly to MPLC. There are many items that need to be restocked.
