      Prepare Food for Families of the Deceased
      Elaine Windham, Gail Mayeaux and Carol Clausen call parishioners to donate and prepare food for families of the deceased. They notify parishioners about needed food and delivering to the church’s hospitality room, or to the KC Hall. The family is responsible for getting the food from church after the funeral. The church side door is left open so people can deliver directly to the hospitality room. If you feel called to this ministry, please call Elaine Windham at 394-3984 or 289-2627 (cell) or the church office at 394-0314. The committee provides—four meats, four vegetables, four salads, and four desserts. When delivering food, sign a paper in a binder so the family can be aware of who has given food. If you have, or even if you have not been on the receiving end of this committee’s generosity, perhaps you would like to sign up to help other families in the future. If we have many volunteers, you will not be called as often. You can always decline and ask to be called at another time.
