"Whoever welcomes you, welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me." Matthew 10:40
Hospitality was without question one of Jesus' prime values, whether he was giving it or receiving it, and hospitality has been one of the most important Christian traits ever since. So a good measure of our stewardship is pretty simple: how hospitable am I?

Center of Grace has reopened their kitchen, so we can cook the meals at Center of Grace with some restrictions. We can only make 125 meals, box them and distribute them outside - the dining room is still closed - starting this month on the 4th Thursday - June 25th.
Volunteers will be needed to shop, prepare food, box the meals, make individual baggies of cookies/brownies, and hand out the packages at 5:30 that evening. If you are interested in helping in any of these tasks, please send a message or call Barb Belt at 913-515-9001.
