When we began a small meal program XX years ago, no one anticipated that it would grow into both a nonprofit feeding the hungry and a weekly event serving an average of 250 people each week. To feed that many, we raised funds to have a professional kitchen installed.
Named for Pastor Emeritus Joseph Ellwanger, this community room is host to our Bread of Healing meal, food pantry, the quilting ministry, youth education, Adult Center and so much more! We could think of no better way to honor the man who helped us become deeply rooted in our ever-evolving community, and helped make many of our ministries a reality.
