FREE COMMUNITY MEALS
Many of our area churches have monthly dinners that are free and open to the community. They serve as both a way to help someone in need and as a time of fellowship. Many of them offer takeouts so you could even help a shut-in or a neighbor who might enjoy a hot meal. All dinners start at 5:00 PM.
The community dinners follow this schedule every month:
1st Thursday – rotating schedule between Wilmot UMC (103 Milton St., Wilmot), Brewster Friends Church (139 Main St. SW, Brewster) and Newcomer’s Chapel. Go to the Calendar page of our website for the location of each month’s dinner.
3rd Tuesday – Otterbein UMC (6025 Shepler Church Ave. SW, Navarre).
