"I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me."

--Matthew 25:35-36, NRSV

Community Table

The Community Table is a free meal offered at the church, once a month, open to everyone. No sermon.

Meals are served from 4-5pm the last Saturday of each month. Our goal is to help community members who may be nearing the end of their resources, are homeless, can't cook for themselves or would like to share a meal and fellowship with others.

There are many costs associated with this program and donations or volunteers, will be greatly appreciated. To donate, either designate the amount on the Sunday offering envelope to: Community Table, or write a check payable to the Ft Des Moines UMC, with Community Table on the memo line. If you prefer to donate food, bus tokens or toiletries, please contact the chairperson listed below.

Your ongoing prayers for the success of our program and the meal program at the Epworth United Methodist Church as well as those being served, are greatly appreciated!
