Dinner Church Update! (March 20, 2019)
Our team wanted you all to know that Dinner Church is a month in and well underway. We launched on Sunday night, February 24th at 5pm at Coral Sunset Elementary School. We have already met and ministered to three families over this last month and one of the families has plugged into an existing church small group. To the right you will see a picture of the 26 people that came out to serve at our Launch. We have our third Dinner Church this coming Sunday and we will continue to meet every 2nd and 4th Sunday night; same place, same time.
This is such an exciting ministry to be a part of and a church that all of you have helped support. For many years, this church has been tilling the soil and planting the seeds through the faithful servants of the Wednesday Backpack Ministry. Because of this consistent ministry, the school knows us and trusts us and wants more than anything to see this Dinner Church grow and succeed. They have gone out of their way to get the word out to their 850 students and their families and are so thankful for our continued partnership.
Thank you to all of you that have served this school faithfully over the years and thank you to those who are excited to get involved in the coming months. God is up to something new and fresh and our Dinner Church Team is blessed to be in the heart of it all. Please continue to be in prayer for our team as we reach out, make new relationships and continue to partner with the Coral Sunset Community.
If you would like to know about more specific ways to serve or get involved with Dinner Church, please email me, Pastor Rachel for more information.
Grace and Peace,
Rev. Rachel DeLaune
Dinner Church is a launch of a fresh expression at Coral Sunset Elementary School. We meet on the second and fourth Sunday of the month at 5:00pm for a free meal, extra homework help, a small Bible teaching, and for a community gathering for the whole family. We want to be a place for families surrounding Coral Sunset Elementary to be able to come and not only get fed and receive homework help, but to build community relationships. If you have any questions you can reach the team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dinner Church Upcoming Dates: March 24, April 14, April 28
