“Feed My Sheep”

Couple Working in Homeless Shelter

The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” 
 
Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” 
 
He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.” 
 
Jesus said, “Feed my sheep.”  John 21:17
 

Far too often, Christians engage in good causes, but in ways that keep us far removed from actual human interaction.  These actions, although helpful, keep us from risking anything at all.  The truth is that when we’re following Christ with our whole lives, we’re called to action.  We’re called to open our eyes, hearts, and hands to the people and causes that God cares about.

This Saturday, June 1, 2013, from 9-11 am, Central Church will be serving a full, free breakfast to anyone in our community who walks through our doors.  Some of our guests will be the old or lonely who seek a little human conversation and companionship.  Many will come out of economic necessity, especially when, like this month, the first Saturday comes before monthly pension and assistance checks have been received.

If you are free Saturday morning, please consider joining us for the Saturday Breakfast, either by cooking or preparing the food in the Kitchen, or by serving or chatting with the folks who are eating in the Fellowship Hall!
