Meal Shepherds

Imagine that you are recovering from surgery or dealing with a sick loved one. Now imagine that a friend shows up with a basket filled with a warm dinner for your family. That is what the Meal Shepherds do. From time to time there are several families that need meals, but each Meal Shepherd is responsible for one or a few meals. Call the church office if you would like to be on the list of people who make meals. Also, please let the church office know if you would like a meal after recovering from surgery or have a sick loved one. We also provide meals for new parents those first days you are home from the hospital.

Daytimers

Within an hour of Oak Park there are LOTS of places to explore. Daytimers is open to anyone who has free time in the day and can join us for each event. The group takes trips to local sights followed by a meal. Contact the office to make your RSVP. Ch   eck out these upcoming events:

November 13: will be the semi-annual Bunco party at First Baptist.

December 11: visit the Glessner House.
