Monthly Meals @ the City Mission
Once a month, our team cooks the meal here at Parkside Church then transports and serves the meal at both of the CityMission shelters - Laura's Home, a women and children's shelter and Crossroads, a men's shelter. This meal provides an opportunity to build relationships and share the hope of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We prepare and serve meals the fourth Thursday of every month. To be a part of preparing or serving meals, email Rachel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
