Sultry summer mornings, rain, snow, even during the ice storm of 2003, Sandwich Ministry thrives every Sunday morning. Sunday mornings, when many area relief agencies are closed and the homeless are left with nowhere to find food, we create and distribute sandwiches to those in need. A group of volunteers gathers at 8:30 in the church kitchen to prepare 120 sack lunches (2 ham and cheese sandwiches, a juice box, and fruit). It’s not a turkey dinner, but it’s something our neighbors count on every single week. Then at 9:10, a delivery crew gathers all of the coolers of sack lunches, cool lemonade (soup during winter), and coffee and distributes the free food at Rupp Arena Parking lot (corner of Broadway and Maxwell) at 9:30. If you are interested in volunteering on Sunday mornings, please contact the church office (255-1074).
SANDWICH MINISTRY SCHEDULE
This is the current schedule. Take a look and if you know you will not be able to work on a Sunday you have been assigned it is your responsibility to find a substitute. The best way is to keep this email and then reply to all with your request for a substitute or to switch weeks.
If you cannot find a substitute please let me know. You can send me an email at Jkyle10353@aol.com or call my home phone, 223-9020, especially if it is a last minute change.
Also, remember when a family is scheduled to work it is expected that at least two people from the family will work.
As usual sandwich making starts at 8:30 Sunday mornings and delivery people start loading up at 9:15. Because the services at Nathaniel Mission are running later people are showing up later for our sandwiches. Be sure not to give out seconds until 10 and look to see if people are headed your way from the far end of the parking lot.
Everyone should also remember to clean up the kitchen after making the sandwiches as well as washing out the coffee and lemonade/soup containers after returning to the church.
