In Jesus’ parable in Matthew 25, the ‘righteous’ ask “Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink?” His answer, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these, you did it to me.” This week we are focusing on addressing hunger. This Saturday, at our 8 a.m. breakfast, we will learn more about the work of the Contra Costa Food Bank; on Sunday at 10 a.m. we will “Rise Against Hunger” and help pack 10,000 meals; then next week we will cook and serve meals at the Martinez Family Shelter. When we feed one another, we act out our connection in Christ. For in Christ we are all brothers and sisters, members of one human family.
This Sunday, October 15th
We will once again be packaging 10,000 plus meals for
Rise Against Hunger
We will have a brief worship service in the Sanctuary at 10am, and then move to the
Celebration Center to package food
