Home Meals Ministry

This ministry provides meals and food for individuals and families affiliated with our Church and School home. Most referrals are given to us through our members who are aware of those in need of our assistance. (The names of the individuals and families that we serve are kept confidential). Meals are provided when there is an illness, or a death in the family, or to families just struggling to get along. With summer upon us, and children out of school, parents are finding it more difficult to provide meals for their families.

We try to keep the freezer filled with soups, pasta dishes, vegetables and meat dishes. We also try to keep bulk frozen chicken parts on hand for those who need more than a meal or two. Currently, the freezer is a little barren. We are in need of some meals, soups, and some bulk chicken or meat.

HOW CAN I HELP, YOU ASK? That’s easy. When you are preparing a meal for your own family, if you are able to do so, put aside a portion for Home Meals, freeze it and bring it to Church and place in the freezer. Another way to help is to use the coupons that ShopRite and Stop ‘n’ Shop have in their circulars. If you are not using the coupon yourself, and you are able to donate the item, buy the chicken parts (or whatever meat product is on sale) and bring that item to the freezer. These items will be distributed as needed.

The Home Meals Ministry in under the guidance of the Missions and Evangelism Board. Thank you in advance for your help with this ministry. Should you have any questions, please call the Church office at 782-5600.
