FEEDING FRONTLINE WORKERS

LOCATION: Flowers Hospital
DATE: Tuesday, March 2
TIME: 11:00am – 1:30pm

LOCATION: Southeast Health
DATE:
Saturday, March 6
TIME: 11:00am – 1:30pm

Our Lenten worship series (MORE: Life as Jesus Intended) includes a “Deeper Dive” activity each week related to the message for the week. February 28th’s message is on “A Life of Hospitality” so we’ll be showing hospitality to some of our local frontline workers during the following week.

Between these two days, we will feed a total of 1,500 hospital employees to show our appreciation for their hard work during the COVID-19 pandemic. This outreach will cost $11,000. Our Missions Committee has offered to provide $5,500 and has challenged the church to match that $5,500!

TO SERVE:

If you would like to serve lunch to Flowers Hospital employees on March 2, please sign up online here.

If you would like to serve lunch to Southeast Health employees on March 6, please sign up online here.

TO GIVE:

The Missions Committee has challenged us to raise $5,500 for this project and they will provide the remaining $5,500 to total $11,000 for the entire outreach. Can you help us reach this goal? Maybe you want to provide a meal for 5 employees, or 10 employees…the cost per meal is $7.30.

If you would like to give financially to this ministry opportunity, you are welcome to designate funds to “feeding frontline workers” through check or online giving here. If you’re not be able to volunteer to serve meals on those days, this would be a great way for you to still be involved with reaching out to those individuals at our Dothan hospitals.
