Help serve a meal at Brown Memo­r­i­al UMC

Out­reach has vol­un­teered to pre­pare and serve the Sun­day din­ner at Brown Memo­r­i­al on 4 August. We’re plan­ning a cook­out and look­ing for your help. From buy­ing hot dogs or baked beans, to cook­ing the ‘dogs’ on the grill (in the Brown Memo­r­i­al park­ing lot) and serv­ing peo­ple who may not see too many hot meals, you are encour­aged to help and be a part of this mis­sion. As those of you who have served at Brown in the past have learned, as well as those who made sand­wich­es for the Samar­i­tan Cen­ter last Sun­day, serv­ing oth­ers is what we’re made to do. It’s evi­dent by the smiles it brings to our faces. More details to come.
