FISHES & LOAVES
Fishes & Loaves is responsible for the 5 Lenten soup suppers, a church picnic, Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. We prepare and purchase items for the soup suppers, collect the nominal fee for them, and oversee the Shepherd groups serving the meal. For the picnic, we purchase the meat, buns, condiments, and drinks. Attendees provide side dishes and enjoy games before eating. We also provide the sign-up sheets. For the Thanksgiving dinner, turkey, dressing, and gravy are provided with the attendees bringing the side dishes. On Christmas, a ham is provided and the attendees also bring side dishes. With the Shepherd groups serving juice, coffee, and cookies after the Sunday morning service, this committee makes sure there are the necessary supplies in the pantry. During the year, the committee also may have a game night, movie, or a music program.
