Like last year, no takeout plates will be allowed. This year’s meal will be dine-in only with service beginning at about 11 a.m. and continuing until 1 p.m. or until the food runs out.
Because of some new health requirements from hosting The Table monthly dinner, church officials decided last year to make a few necessary changes to the meal.
Pastor Larry McRorey said, “We are pleased to host this annual event and we believe this is a wonderful opportunity to get to know our neighbors on a more personal level by inviting and encouraging all of us to sit down and fellowship at the table together in a true ecumenical spirit.”
Live musical entertainment will be provided by The Forgiven, FUMC’s own praise and worship band.
McRorey invites brothers and sisters from other congregations to come out and support the efforts to feed one another in our community.
FUMC expects to serve more than 1,200 people this year and is requesting help from church volunteers and civic and youth groups, “as we encourage the participation of other Beeville area churches,” the pastor said.
There are a variety of work areas that will need volunteers, including setup, meal preparation and service, and cleanup. Members of local churches are being asked to provide dessert items.
