RUMC Metropolitan Ministry Project Launched
Saturday, June 24th marked the launch of RUMC’s Metropolitan Ministry Saturday Lunch program. Volunteers from RUMC and neighboring churches served food to all comers from 11:30 AM until 12:30 PM. Hot meals (a meat dish, a starch, and a vegetable dish) were prepared by Metropolitan Ministry in Tampa and delivered to our Crichton Fellowship Hall where it was dished up and served by our local volunteers. Desserts and bread were provided by RESTORE in conjunction with the Winn-Dixie bakery on Big Bend Road. Other contributors provided drinks, ice and the paper goods needed to make our first week a success.
On our first Saturday, we served 24 meals free to customers, and we are hoping to grow our client-base as word spreads throughout the community. Everyone is welcome to enjoy a nutritious hot meal, and to spend time in fellowship with their friends and neighbors.
VBS Dates Have Been Chosen
Dates for our Vacation Bible School have been tentatively set for July 10-14. This year’s theme is “Hero Central”, where the children will be invited to discover their strength with God. As usual, we will need teachers, leaders, helper, refreshment providers and other volunteers.
Rolinda is also asking for children’s t-shirts in a variety of bright colors. She and her helpers will be using them to create capes for our new young “heroes”.
To register your young superheroes or to volunteer to help,
