Ronald McDonald House Dinner
Sign up to help cook and serve “Meals from the Heart” at the Fort Worth Ronald McDonald House on Saturday, September 2. This is part of our quarterly service to the families whose children are in treatment at area hospitals. One of our regular participants reports, “It’s so rewarding to connect with the residents as we prepare and serve them a meal. It’s hard for me to fully understand the heartache and challenges they are facing but so gratifying to see their appreciation of our support and comforting food.”
We have chosen to barbeque hot dogs and hamburgers and include all the trimmings. We’ll prepare “fancy” baked beans and finish with fruit salad and fresh baked cookies. Sign up to provide meal ingredients and to help cook, serve and clean up. We always have so much fun as families working together. You are welcome to invite friends or neighbors to help, too. The sign up sheets are on the hall bulletin board.
The St. Stephen’s Chapter of Daughters of the King is sponsoring a film event open to all. Come along on Saturday afternoon September 9 at 2 pm. We’ll view The War Room and have an opportunity to discuss this dynamic portrayal of a family learning the power of prayer.
Details of the event here.
