"For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me"
Acting on Christ’s mandate to feed the hungry, the Sunday Suppers Ministry provides and serves a simple hot meal on Sunday evenings at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Park Ridge. Parish ministry groups volunteer on a rotating basis five to six Sundays throughout the year, along with many other churches and civic groups in Park Ridge, to provide sustenance for individuals and families struggling financially in the area.
Each ministry group is responsible for scheduling a selected date with the Ministry Head and providing and serving a meal, either homemade or catered. Working with the staff at the serving site, the ministry will set up for guests and clear and clean the area following the guests' departure, and provide hospitality to guests. There are no meetings for this ministry. Time commitment for the evening of service is approximately 4-5 hours on site for setup, service and clean up on the scheduled Sunday afternoon/evening.
