St. Martin’s July benevolence focus is our lunch bag ministry. Every Monday through Friday morning from 9:00—11:00 am, volunteers sit at the 16th Street door of the church to welcome our hungry guests and give them one or two bag lunches. We often have short conversations with them and thus let them know that St. Martin’s cares about each of them. In the afternoons the preschool staff also gives out lunches to our guests.
Bags are filled with snacks and beverages like Vienna sausages, juice, fruit snacks, applesauce, as well as treats like candy. Water bottles are also provided.
You can get involved with this ministry by volunteering to give out lunches during the week, being on the team to help pack lunches, or by making an offering to help buy supplies through Realm or by writing a check.
Contact Deb Johnson (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’re interested in volunteering — this ministry welcomes your help!
