Join us for the Community Feast, 5:30-6:15 pm in the Fellowship Center every Wednesday, for casual dining and conversation. The menus change weekly and the food is served buffet style. UMOM New Day Centers Helpings Catering caters the meals, which support services for the homeless. Suggested donations are: $7.50 for adults / $3 for children.
The Feast began Wednesday, September 16, 2015. We take a break the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and end for the year on Wednesday, December 16. Join us again on January 6, 2016, and every week until May 2016.
