OPPORTUNITIES IN MINISTRY
Feeding the Hungry: Partnering with Church of the Ascension in Lexington Park, on alternate Mondays, you can
join the team of folks who buy and then drop off groceries for Monday evening dinner to support our veterans. The
cook team from Ascension will take it from there. Contact Kerri Frank at
kerri.thompsonfrank@leonardtowngrants.com.

FEEDING THE HUNGRY AT THREE OAKS

As you may know, churches are providing meals for the Three Oaks Center. Perhaps you have done this in the past. Here is an opportunity to take part in this ministry.

Church of the Ascension is responsible for alternate Mondays. At the moment there are a few openings in their schedule, one of which can be yours. 

If you want one of these days or if you want more information, you can contact kerrithompson.frank@leonardtowngrants.com.  Here’s how it works: on your Monday morning—or the Sunday evening before, if Monday morning is inconvenient—drop off groceries for Monday evening’s dinner. This would be meat, one or two vegetables and/or fruit for a gracious meal feeding about twenty people. The folks at Three Oaks will prepare the meal and tend to cleaning up.
