Serving God Through Serving OthersHow Does It Work?
The meals ministry coordinator is made aware of a need, either through a direct request for help, or through referral by someone within the church. Volunteers are then contacted and asked to provide a meal (home cooked or purchased) and deliver it to the recipient’s home.Who Do We Serve?
OBC families and individuals in times of need including but not limited to:
After the birth of a baby.
After surgery or hospitalization.
During times of crisis.
The meals ministry is an excellent way to meet other people from church and make a difference in someone’s life, with a minimal time commitment. Meals DO NOT have to be homemade. In situations such as these, it is definitely “the thought that counts.” The purpose is to help someone in need by providing a helping hand in meal preparation, not to dazzle anyone with your culinary skills. In times of need, a friendly face and a meal is a true gift.
Provide a complete meal and deliver it to the recipient’s home.
It can be store bought, homemade, frozen or just about anything!
Meal does not have to be fancy or gourmet.
More Service Opportunities
The purpose of involving more people in a serving capacity as well as increasing the outreach of each ministry is ultimately to bring God glory. Serving within the local church is the “stuff of life”. Disciples are made by coming alongside someone and “doing life” together.
