Gleanings Community Meal
Our Gleanings ministry continues to flourish. The core of that work, collaborating with the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK) to provide food and fellowship each week to our guests, continues to go well.
In 2016 we served about 94 meals a week, and in 2017 that number climbed to its current level of 120 meals per week.
Yet, those numbers don’t show the care and camaraderie that fill the narthex on Tuesdays. When a regular guest or volunteer is absent, everyone wonders and checks in the following week. Laughter and stories flow through the room. Sometimes we share tears and prayers, either on the spot or in the Prayers of the People on Sunday. Please keep all our guests, their families, and our volunteers in your prayers. Please donate to help offset the cost of this growing and community building ministry at Holy Apostles.
Every summer we work with TASK on a back to school collection. Donations of new backpacks and school supplies can be left in the basket in the narthex through mid-August. To give a financial donation that will assist us in purchasing back to school supplies please click on the Donate Now button below. The supplies will be distributed to families at our Tuesday meals and at the main TASK site in Trenton.
