Inner City Pastoral Ministry Lunch: St. Margaret’s in partnership with St. Mary’s Anglican Church will be providing and serving lunch at the Bissell Center on Sunday January 11th, 2015. We normally serve about 300 people. As in the past a sign up sheet will be at the back of the church for those wishing to help out. We require:
Desserts – finger desserts such as squares or cookies.
Prepared raw vegetables – carrots, celery, cucumbers, cauliflower, peppers or cherry tomatoes. (please do not include dips.)
Fruit – bananas, apples, oranges, melon or grapes
Please indicate the amount of food you will be providing. If you prefer to make a donation please enclose it in your Sunday offering and mark it ICPM. The last few years our expenses have exceeded our donations. We will purchase all the sandwich ingredients as well as pickles, coffee, sugar, juice crystals, paper products, ect.
On Saturday January 10th, 2015 we will be making the sandwiches (10:00 am) and will required 10 people. The time and location will be posted at a later date.
If you have extra plastic grocery bags could you leave them in the church kitchen. We require about 100 to send out extra sandwiches to the homeless.
