Sandwich Ministry Grows

It has been a fantastic month! 

On Tuesday May 11, we had a very successful day with both ShowUp Sac with the portable showers and Sutter Health providing Covid vaccines in the First UMC parking lot. 

Our meals continue to be well attended. We are providing a hot lunch on the third Tuesday, and hot burritos made by Juan, Joe and Javier on the last two Sundays. 

The Sandwich ministry organized by Laura Reed is going so well with our volunteers providing over 400 sandwiches a month. In addition, we provide hot soup every Tuesday while the showers are on site. This ministry is going strong thanks to the numerous volunteers; the bakers, the servers, the sandwich makers, the fruit pickers that bring in your produce, and the support staff.

As of the end of April the FUMC team has logged over 440 hours of service! To date we have handed out over 900 sandwiches, 550 hot meals and 14 kettles of soup. Thank you to all of you that support and keep this ministry going.
What a resourceful and generous congregation!
