Soup Kitchen

One of the missions that our church supports is the Park Place Soup Kitchen. The Park Place Soup Kitchen serves between 125 and 175 people of all ages two evenings per week. Churches and civic groups participate in this ministry by taking on responsibility for providing a meal. LUMC participates by preparing and serving dinner once a month, usually on the third or fourth Thursday of the month.
Several groups within our church take responsibility for each dinner date. These groups include Sunday School classes, our men’s and women’s groups, our youth group, and the Missions committee.
Meals are usually simple, seasonally appropriate, and are designed to appeal to a broad group. Dinners might consist of pasta, soup, stew, or sandwiches. We almost always provide PBJ sandwiches for children, and we also provide a beverage and cookies for dessert.
Our participation in this ministry relies on volunteers. For most volunteers, this usually involves a commitment starting at 5:30 PM on the assigned Thursday. Dinner is served beginning at 6:30, and we are usually done between 7:30 and 8:00.
The Park Place Soup Kitchen is a great way for us to give back to our community. Seeing the face of a child getting a hot meal that they would miss if we weren’t there is a rewarding event. It is also a great opportunity to get to know your fellow church members.
