BENEVOLENCE – COOKED MEALS
The purpose of the cooked meals benevolence ministry is to show love, kindness, compassion, and hospitality. As Paul encouraged, “Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace” (1 Peter 4:8-10).
Members volunteer to take meals to families or individuals who are experiencing a difficult situation, such as sickness in the family, hospitalization, bereavement, a new-born, moving into the community, or other form of upheaval or change.
The meal delivery is organized through email or text, and an online scheduling system such as, “Take Them A Meal” is used.
Meals may be scheduled for one or two weeks depending on the need and can be either home-cooked or purchased, simple or elaborate, depending on the giver’s abilities.
