To mark the first anniversary of a most successful outreach program, the entire congregation is invited to participate in the biggest Sandwich Sundays operation yet. On Sunday, March 9, the First Sunday of Lent, following the 11:15 am service, there will be no formal Coffee Hour. Instead, all those in church that day can join an assembly line of sandwich makers right in the church at a table that stretches across the chancel, with the altar of communion at the center.
Please let Outreach Committee co-leaders, Rosanne Limoncelli and Jenniffer Goana, know what you can bring by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Loaves of bread, sandwich meats, and sliced American or Cheddar cheese are needed. Lettuce also welcome, but no tomatoes or condiments, please.
The many sandwiches we make that day will be delivered, as usual, to the guests of The Gathering Place, a drop-in center run by CAMBA that serves the homeless and working poor. Our sandwiches are the only meal provided at The Gathering Place on Sundays, so they are indeed valuable and appreciated.
Throughout Lent, beefing up Sandwich Sundays program with your participation between our Sunday morning services, 10:00 – 11:00 am, will be our outreach focus.
