Meade Memorial Episcopal Church is excited to host in partnerships with National Community Church, Elevate Church, and other local churches and businesses, a Thanksgiving meal for those in need [homeless and working poor]--we call it the "Gratitude Table."We are seeking over 30+ joyful volunteers to donate food items and/or help set up, prepare, greet, serve, have fellowship with attendees, and clean up.
Peacemaking is not just a command to be peaceful, but a commission to action! Team members will learn new ways to put their faith into action by spending time with organizations that pursue peace, justice and reconciliation for all people.
We will visit Palestinian Christians, churches and seminary, spend time in refugee camps in the birthplace of Christ, engage in interfaith dialogue, and end the week volunteering at, or running, a marathon in solidarity with the local community in Bethlehem. Storytellers, peacemakers, runners and volunteers of all levels welcome.
Second Saturday Serve is our way to serve our neighbors with no strings attached. For more information about the projects and locations email the leader below and join one of a variety of service projects such as clean-up, painting, spending time with the elderly, or serving meals to people experiencing homelessness. The projects vary each month. Just show up and bring friends!
