Cooking skills that is...or at least the ability to organize those who do have cooking skills?
The folks at the WE WILL GO Ministry need you!
Every Sunday afternoon, after the weekly worship, prayer, and teaching service, a fellowship meal is served. This meal is made available for whoever wants to join in --- homeless folks, visiting church people, neighbors of the ministry, prostitutes and pimps, addicts and dealers, and ministry interns --- whoever! It is a good opportunity for people to sit down and get to know each other. WWG is not about just giving away free stuff. WWG is about building relationships and sharing the love and truth of Jesus. A meal is a very natural way for this to happen.
In the very beginning, David and Amy Lancaster would fix all the food and just invite their friends and neighbors over to eat in their backyard. As the ministry grew and it became common for over a hundred folks to break bread together, others have become a part of the provision. Some churches commit to providing a meal once a month. Other churches, families, and groups cook and serve a meal a just once. The meals can be as simple as take-out pizza, tossed salad, and cookies or as elaborate as turkey, dressing, and all the fixings.
Whether the meal is a homecooked dinner or something picked up at a carry-out, it is one of the ways that Jesus is bringing light and love into inner-city Jackson.
