Super Bowl of Caring on February 7, 2016
Last year, about 111 million people in the United States (one of every three people) watched the super bowl. That’s a lot of Americans! While 111 million Americans watched the Super Bowl, 50 million Americans were food insecure that day and every day. That’s equals, in Americans, ½ the people that watched the Super Bowl! Did you know that North Carolina has one of the highest percentages in the United States of kids under 18 who are food insecure on a regular basis? About 25%! Did you know that in Wake County public schools 1 out of every 3 students receive free or reduced breakfast and lunch to help make sure they have enough to eat each day?Read more: WRPC Can Put a Dent in Hunger!
“Serving Communion is one of my most favorite parts of being an elder!”
West Raleigh has been extending the Table for years now. Elders, deacons and pastors have found great joy in taking Communion to those who are in the hospital or homebound.
The Congregational Care Committee is currently reinvigorating our faithful practice by encouraging members of the congregation to share in this ministry with our ordained officers.
This year we hope to take Communion to all of our homebound members during Holy Week, beginning on Sunday, March 20th and extending through the week until all have been served. Sign up here so that you can let us know which day during Holy Week you would like to join a team in Extending the Table. I invite you to consider sharing in the blessing that we have received as we Extend the Table so that all may be fed. Thanks be to God!
See you in church,
