TMPC One Table Community Meal
TMPC hosts a free meal open to everyone in our church family and the community on the second Sunday of each month.
Our next meal is on february 11th from 12:30-1:30.
Our Valentines menu will include Chicken Parmesan, Eggplant/Vegetarian Parm, Pasta, and Italian Green Beans, as well as other side dishes, salads and desserts.
We need you, our members, to join us for the meal! Why is this important? The contact between guests and church members is the heart of Jesus’ teaching: I was a stranger, and you took me into your home. As we welcome these guests to our church home, so we welcome Jesus.
We are guided by the words of Jesus as shared in Matthew 25:34-40:
“Then the king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, my Father has blessed you! Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world. I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger, and you took me into your home. I needed clothes, and you gave me something to wear. I was sick, and you took care of me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’ “Then the people who have God’s approval will reply to him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you or see you thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you as a stranger and take you into our homes or see you in need of clothes and give you something to wear? When did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ “The king will answer them, ‘I can guarantee this truth: Whatever you did for one of my brothers or sisters, no matter how unimportant they seemed, you did for me.”
