THE BROTHER LAWRENCE FOOD MINISTRY
The Brother Lawrence Food Ministry, inspired by a 17th century monk who served the Lord by doing kitchen duties for his brothers in Christ, was begun in 2010 by two individuals serving five to six shut-ins at Christ Memorial Episcopal Church. Their purpose was to feed and minister by showing God’s love to the sick and homebound in our community.
It has grown today to serve 40-50 people weekly and has evolved into a community ministry drawing from many; varied religious groups including Baptist and Catholic in the parish. Each meal is prepared with loving hands and prayers then delivered to each home. Wonderful personal relationships have been formed and we all benefit.
Brother Lawrence Food Ministry was kicked off with one time funds from the Episcopal women’s group and has been kept going strong with donations ever since.
