Sisters and brothers in Christ,
On Wednesday night we begin another year of monthly Meal Packs. Comfort Meal Ministry began in the fall of 2010 as a tangible way of sharing the love of Christ with those who needed a little extra comfort through the gift of a homecooked meal. We have already shared 5,000 meals out of the freezer in the narthex.
On Wednesday night, we begin our eighth year of this important year-round service ministry. The night starts with a free meal for everyone. Attired with hair nets (stylish, I know) and plastic gloves, we will lovingly pack about two hundred Comfort Meals. Confirmation ministry plays an important part in making this happen. That said, the Meal Pack is not just for the kids and their leaders. Everyone at St. James is invited to come out and serve. Come for the table fellowship and to share in a good meal with your church family. Come to serve and lend a hand in the packing of Comfort Meals. Come and worship - we conclude the night with worship in the fellowship hall that is informal and moving.
I hope that you are able to join me and the dozens of people that will come out on Wednesday for this ministry. It will be a fun evening that is full of meaning and purpose for all who attend.
As always, I look forward to being with you in worship (on Wednesday night this week and on Sunday).
