Bread of Life Thursday is a community outreach ministry with a mission to nourish those in need, to support small local businesses, and to shine the light and love of Jesus. Local restaurants and caterers graciously prepare our sandwiches, local musicians bring their talents to get us dancing, and your generous donations allow us to purchase the lunches. Our volunteers top the list of joys – they are the hands and feet of our “son”. Join us! Invite a friend, neighbor, family member who might be struggling, feeling alone, or who just needs to “get away from it all”. We welcome everyone!

More Blessings under the “Son”! We’ve made beautiful Psalm 23 Prayer Beads with scripture printed on a bookmark for you or anyone you know who needs strength during struggling times and for gratitude during joyful times. Cost for each strand is $10 and you can order these beautiful strands here:
