Many kids in Southwest Wisconsin depend upon the public school lunch program for the majority of their meals, so they often go hungry during the summer. The Summer Food Program serves free meals to children and teenagers 18 years old and under at sites in Bloomington, Boscobel, Cozy Acres, and Woodman. Can you give 1–3 hours of time to help prepare/serve lunch and/or pack meals for kids this summer? Serve on a regular basis or whenever you’re available. Call the church office at 608-375-4565 or Sarah Pegram at 608-391-0318
The Hospitality Team’s priority is to make church a place where people can make friends for life. This team does whatever it takes to make everyone who comes through our doors feel welcome and comfortable. This can include greeting people at the door, serving coffee and treats, handing out programs, helping seat latecomers, and receiving offering on Sunday mornings. Hospitality is a great place to start serving and there is always room on this team. The main skill needed is a genuine smile! To find out more about serving in Hospitality, contact Tracy Atkinson, Guest Services Coordinator.

Since many school-aged kids in our area depend upon the public school lunch program for the majority of their meals, they often go hungry on the weekends. To feed those growing bodies, we offer Snack Sacks to students in the River Ridge School District area and Blessings in a Bag to those in the Boscobel Area School District. Each weekend children are given an unmarked bag with easy-to-fix foods to get them through the weekend. If you would like to help pack these bags, please contact the office
