Let's Eat!

Today our congregation fed the junior high and high school students as well as the school faculty at Tipton Schools. This is the 2nd year we've hosted the cookout.

Many church members donated money to pay for food supplies for the cookout. Some made cookies and brownies. Some donated hamburger meat. Some brought other food supplies. Some cooked on the grills. Some helped set up. Some helped clean up. Some helped serve during the student's lunch time.

Today was a beautiful day for the cookout and everyone enjoyed eating outside on such a pleasant day.

Approximately 200 students and adults were served today. No one went away hungry!

One of the duties of the church is to serve others. These students and faculty weren't needy. They could have eaten in the school cafeteria like they do every other weekday. But, today they saw Christians being servants as Christ's example shows throughout the Gospels.

If your gift is serving others, serve them well.

Romans 12:7
