As you know, we offer a free dinner for the community every Wednesday night. We have been doing this for some time and we continue to feed many people every week. This is an excellent opportunity for anyone at COTHA to participate in an outreach, since you can participate by bringing a food item (spaghetti, sauce, bread, salad or canned vegetables) and/or sign up to serve or clean up afterward.
As we move forward with this outreach ministry to the Katy area, I want to challenge you or a ministry group you are in (small groups or one of our many studies or service ministries), to participate. We are streamlining the way that you can help. We can serve and clean up with as few as three to four people. If you have more people in your small group or ministry, you can sign up for more than one Wednesday. We will have a sign-up sheet in the Evangelism Kiosk this Sunday so that you can see what the needs and dates are. Also, please notice the basket for food that is located in the kiosk as well. We would like to challenge you to remember to buy something extra when you shop for groceries. Bring your food offerings every week as we seek to create a way in which every one at COTHA can participate.
Jesus gave us a clear mission to help those who are in need. We need to pray for them and provide for their physical needs as well. Our outreach ministry takes us to the far reaches of the earth but it also includes reaching out to the greater Katy area as well. May God be blessed by our desires to “not look away.”
