Youth to Trinity Soup Kitchen: 
January 21


Trinity Table (Trinity Soup Kitchen) has been serving the hungry of Atlanta since 1982. They serve everyone who comes to the Table a hot meal and give each guest a to-go bag of food as well. This ministry is successful because of the work of dedicated volunteers. 

 

On Sunday, January 21, our youth, along with adult volunteers, will be going to Trinity Table to serve. 

 

In order to serve the approximately 250 guests, we need your help! Please look below and also on the Connect Card in your Sunday bulletin to see if you can help with any of the items needed. You may either check the boxes on the back of the Connect Card, or contact the church office to sign up. 

 

Then just bring your donations to the church kitchen by January 20th. Please make sure that you put your name and "Trinity Soup Kitchen" on your donation when you bring it to the church.  (Soup should be frozen in gallon zip-lock bags please.)

 

If you would like to go with the Youth to help serve, you may sign up for that too! Thanks! 

 

Needed: 

1 gallon vegetable-beef soup (need 35 gallons)

         (optional recipe here

squeeze margarine (18 bottles)

saltine crackers (17 boxes)

3 boxes granola bars - any type (need 300 bars total)

New Church Cookbook Being Planned!
The Mt. Carmel United Methodist Women are planning to produce a new CHURCH COOKBOOK in 2018!

They will collect and decide on recipes farther along, but right now they are in need of volunteers who would be willing to help layout and produce the cookbook.  

If you are able to help with this process, please check the box on the back of the Connect Card in the Sunday bulletins. And watch for more information!
