Luke 14:12-14 NIV “Then Jesus said to his host, “When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, your brothers or sisters, your relatives, or your rich neighbors; if you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”
We will be doing our monthly meal outreach to help feed the homeless/less fortunate in our community on Sunday, December 16th. This will be a CHRISTmas Dinner with all the fixings. In November, we fed well over 400 and we are planning on feeding well over 400+ again, God willing and we need your help 🙂 Such a cool way to give back to our community and help those that are struggling right now.
The event is scheduled at St. Lucas Lutheran Church at 745 Walbridge Avenue (Off of Broadway), Toledo, OH 43609 from 4 to 5 p.m. (Please note you will need to use the Frank Door Entrance). This is for the entire family so feel free to bring your children. We have a sign-up sheet for all items that we need below AND VOLUNTEERS. Please note volunteer spots are limited and unfortunately once they are filled, that is all we have available.
We will also be giving a toy to each child (going to have Santa come). So we are in need of NEW toys, games, Barbies, Dolls, Stuffed Animals, books, etc. Also, we are looking for $5 to $10 gift cards for the older kids.
READ CAREFULLY THE NOTES BESIDE EACH ITEM YOU ARE SIGNING UP FOR SO YOU PROVIDE THE CORRECT QUANTITY NEEDED!!
We need all the food to be brought in the 1/2 size aluminum pans (Standard 9 x 13 and approx. 2″ deep) or you can bring a full size sheet pan. Please make sure they are completely full as that is what we are basing the portion sizes on.
You can also make monetary donations by visiting www.miraclechristmas.com and clicking on the “donate now” tab or go to paypal.me/miraclechristmas or you can mail a donation to Free Tastes Good, PO Box 312, Sylvania, OH 43560.
All items also need to be fully cooked (except canned corn, green beans, and gravy). The link above will take you directly to the sign-up sheet. Thanks for helping us feed the least of these ~ MATTHEW 25:40 If you are willing to help the day of the event, please sign up also – that section is at the bottom of the sign-up sheet! We will need many to stay afterwards to help us clean up please. Thanks for continuing to be the hands and feet of Jesus!! This is such a cool outreach and I am really excited about this!! You guys are simply amazing!
Something for everyone to think about also as we prepare for this meal, What does kindness mean to each of you? I sometimes think we underestimate how powerful kindness can be to people who are hurting. It truly can change their lives FOREVER!
GOD IS GOOD. . ALL THE TIME!!
