The ‘Soup Kitchen’ here at our church has decided to have a name change. We feel that what we have to offer is so much more than a regular soup kitchen. Therefore we have decided to change the name to ‘Something’s Cooking’. And believe it or not there is ALWAYS something good cooking here every Wednesday from 4:30 – 5:30. The meals are free of charge and everyone in the community is invited to join us.
A new addition to the community meal arena is the Sunday evening meal at The First Presbyterian Church. They are serving a free meal from 5:00 – 7:00 to everyone in the community that wishes to join them.
So, if you are running short on grocery money or just want to socialize a bit take full advantage of the wonderful meals the organizations of this community are preparing weekly. You are sure to leave full and completely satisfied.

Somethings Cooking 

The First United Methodist Church Soup Kitchen opened in 2004. A hot, nutritionally balanced meal, including fresh vegetables and fresh fruit is served every Wednesday evening at 5:00.
There are no requirements to attend the Soup Kitchen. Guests include singles, couples, and families who fellowship with each other. Many are struggling to stretch limited income.
Soup Kitchen is funded by monetary donations.
The Soup Kitchen Crew is made up of four or five women/men who come in on Wednesday afternoon to prepare the meal. Interested in becoming a volunteer?Come and experience a rewarding ministry and have fun along the way. Teens are welcome to come in to help cook/serve meals.

Members and friends of the church furnish the dessert each week. To donate dessert, bring a dessert that can be frozen to the office Sunday – Friday 8:30-12:00 or Monday – Thursday 1:00-3:30.
