The Mission Outreach project for June is………

the Soup Kitchen and the Lakota Center.

The Soup Kitchen provides meals three times a week, at three different sites:  Monday at Our Lady of Guadalupe, Wednesday at the Gering Methodist Church and Thursday at the First Presbyterian Church.  FUMC is responsible for the meal on the second Thursday of each month at the Presbyterian Church.  

The Lakota Lutheran Center & Chapel is a congregational-based ministry emphasizing regular worship, youth education and pastoral care.  The Center is a liaison between Native Americans and non-native residents.  Its aim is to feed the hungry, care for the homeless, provide hospitality and fellowship and assist with emergency situations.

During the pandemic meals have been on a “pick up and go” program rather than in-person seating indoors.  When serving indoors both groups can use disposable plates, bowls, napkins, cups and plastic silverware.

We will collect those items this month in preparation for indoor seating protocols. Please place donations in the outreach bin in Fellowship Hall.

If you would be willing to cook or serve for this ministry, please contact Harriett Aden at 641-5908.

Monetary donations are also welcome – make checks payable to FUMC & mark Soup Kitchen or Lakota Center in the memo line.
