When you or a loved one is recovering from surgery, illness or injury, meal planning can quickly become a burden.
You can ease that burden for someone in the congregation by serving on the Take-a-Meal Ministry. Members of the team are informed when a need arises. There’s no obligation. Serve only when you can. You’ll be provided with the individual or family’s likes, dislikes, food allergies and details about meal delivery.
