We have completed another successful summer of local mission work through the Community Feed My Lambs program. In co-operation with other local churches we were able to deliver 150 lunches each week day to high need areas of our community. FUMC provided in excess of 1500 meals to local families.
A group of dedicated volunteers of all ages gathered each Thursday to prepare and package the sack lunches and teams of drivers delivered them to designated stops in O’Fallon neighborhoods. We built relationships with so many people, kids and adults, as we reached out as Jesus commanded us to, “feed His lambs”. The Kids for Christ organization held a weekly “Vacation Bible School” in one location each Monday.
We are so grateful to our congregation, the Y and District 90 and Central School administrators for supporting this local outreach ministry. It is definitely a team-work effort. We are planning on offering this service again next summer.
