Souper Center Ministry, Friday, October 20

The Greater Richmond Interfaith Program (GRIP) / Souper Center provides free, nutritious hot lunches to all hungry individuals and families, and also provides shelter residents with three meals a day, every day. Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. every day of the year. Most food is donated, and meals are prepared and served by volunteers. The Souper Center is co-housed at GRIP’s Family Housing and Supportive Services facility at 165 22nd Street in Richmond, CA. 

ESUMC's Super Center Ministry actively supports the Souper Center on a monthly basis; we meet there at 10:30 a.m. on the third Friday of each month.  If you would like to help, please contact Mike McGoon, Jack McFarland or call the Church Office at 510-223-0790.

Coffee Fellowship and Luncheon, Sunday, October 22 

Continuing our practice of the past few months, on each 4th Sunday there will be a luncheon in place of coffee and snacks for fellowship. You are invited to put the Fourth Sunday on your calendars and plan to come to the Fellowship Luncheon after the service for a time of fun, and great food!

Coffee time after Sunday worship service is a great time to catch up with all your church family, see old friends and make new ones, ask the preacher questions about the sermon, share your concerns and joys or share your thoughts about the day to day happenings in our communities, and our world.

Please see Noel Stout, Pastor Mark, or anyone on the Worship committee if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing EVERYONE on the 4th Sunday of the month.
