Open Table is held each Monday and Friday morning at Washington Street UMC from 6:00-8:00am. Not only does the breakfast ministry provide food and necessary items to those in need, but it also provides a great place to share in Christ’s love and in community with any who join for breakfast over a shared meal.
WSUMC also pays the Old Town Deli to provide breakfast to our neighbors on Tuesday mornings from 8:00am - 10:00am. Breakfast is also served at Old Town Community Church on Wednesday mornings, and at Old Presbyterian Meeting House on Thursday mornings.
There are a number of ways to serve at and provide needed materials for the Open Table ministry.
We always welcome extra volunteers to serve on Monday & Friday mornings (anytime between 5:45 and 8:30 a.m. — you DO NOT have to be here the entire time).
Others are needed to pick up items, donate personal hygiene items, donate perishable and non-perishable food, and make monetary donations (which are used to purchase food) by writing a check to “WSUMC” with “Open Table” in the memo line, or giving online at wsumc.com/give.
The ministry also relies on your constant prayer. Pray for the ministry, its guests, and its servants that God's love might be made known through a sharing around the breakfast table.
