Jesus joins us every Wednesday night for dinner at Grace Brethren Church! He blesses those who attend with a nicely planned, joyfully prepared meal. For this night, relaxed fellowship replaces the rush to prepare and clean up after the dinner meal at home. We meet new friends, as well as enjoy the company of already-established friends. We discuss a variety of topics, some of which open opportunities for us to pray for one another at home.

For some members of our congregation and community who are ill and unable to attend the dinner, Jesus shares his blessings through compassionate friends who personally deliver meals to them at home. Delivering the meal and sharing a few moments of fellowship brings joy to everyone.

Finally, in the kitchen, Jesus blesses the cooking teams with joy and fellowship. Fellowship begins with planning the meal and shopping for food and continues through preparing, serving, and cleaning up after the meal. The teams find joy in the company of one another and pray together while serving this ministry with the love of Jesus in our hearts.

Our Wednesday Night Family Meals are coming to an end this Wednesday for the Spring.  But, never fear, we will meet again on September 6, 2017 after our summer break.  Mark your calendars and plan to join us for this wonderful fellowship time at Grace.   Bible studies, Awana, Middle School Youth Group, Choir and Praise Team all happen after dinner, so stick around for the fun!
