For more than a decade, the people of Bethlehem have opened their hearts (and the church kitchen) to share a meal together on Wednesday nights. It's typically a no-fuss meal for busy families and friends. The kitchen was quiet throughout much of 2020, but look for that to change as soon as we're able to gather safely again.
There's no liturgy. There's no guestbook or even an official prayer. We simply eat together here (while practicing the lost art of community). We eat, visit, and share what we can; Christ is present there. Bethlehem's Banqueting Table is open to all, and around here, there's always room for dessert. All proceeds raised from gifts received on Wednesday nights help fund future meals. Come and join us. Not a member of Bethlehem? Not a problem; this meal is for all of us.
"But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind. And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you, for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”
Bethlehem's Banqueting Table is entirely volunteer-driven. Some shop for groceries. Others plan meals. Still others cook or clean up. As there are leftovers, even this food is delivered the next day to area shelters in need. Nothing goes to waste, and it's a team effort. If you're feeling called to serve, our Banqueting team no doubt has a need. For more details, contact the church office or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
