Each Thursday for almost three decades the Church Street Soup Kitchen has served the hungry in Downtown Knoxville. Today, in celebration of those who founded this important ministry all those years ago, we held the 5th Annual Bill & Fran BBQ. A huge meal of BBQ chicken, baked beans, potato salad and banana pudding was served up in Parish Hall. The event is typically held outside in the Magnolia lot, but the rain forced it inside. The dreary weather didn't dampen the enthusiasm of our volunteers or our guests!
Thank you to all the volunteers who worked many hours to make the meal possible. We served more than 300 meals this morning! We also thank the congregation for their prayers and continued support of the Church Street Soup Kitchen. If you're interested in volunteering at the Soup Kitchen on Thursdays, please see Pastor Darryll.
