About The Ministry

Lake Elsinore, CA
Every Saturday evening at 5pm, the Life Groups at Venture Christian Church show praise for our Lord and Christ our Savior, by serving a fulfilling dinner and sharing God's everlasting love. By spreading the word of the Gospels to God's children, we are blessed to plant seeds of faith!

Attention Life Groups:

Attention Life Groups:

The Dinner Ministry kit should be returned to Venture Church each Sunday.

Life groups are encourage to take this opportunity to spread God's word by either a mini sermon, sharing their testimony, or by worship music. This is a wonderful way as Christians to praise His glory and show His love to others!

It is important to take certain precautions to help prevent the spreading of germs. Always serve the meals on a fresh a clean plate, even if our friends bring you their plate for refills. This will ensure the food is not contaminated by the serving utensils touching used plates. There is a bottle of hand sanitizer, please place the bottle near the drink jugs for our friends to use. If coffee is being served, please have our friends use stir straws instead of spoons. When serving, those who are handling the food are required to wear serving gloves. Another safe step is have those serving bring the plates to those eating, this also gives them the feeling of respect.

If your Life Group is unable to serve the committed weekend, please give the ministry 72 hours notice to find a replacement team, Thank you!

New Serving Time!

Starting October 6, 2012, the ministry will start serving dinner at 4:00pm.  The new time is for the ministry to serve during daylight hours. This is for the safety of our servers and for those who attend the dinner.  Many of our families walk from across the lake to enjoy a hot-meal. We would like them to walk back before the sun fully sets.

Please, be ready to serve plates by 4:00pm.  I highly recommend arriving at the park to set-up by 3:45.  Also, the Fall is creeping upon us making the nights brisk.  I highly encourage making coffee or providing hot water for tea or coco.  For some of our family, it is their only source of warmth from the cold. The ministry will start providing hot dink cups, stir-sticks, sugar, and creamer.  The red jug is for hot drinks. Once the nights cool off (hopefully soon), I will start introducing the red jug and the items listed above into the cycle once more.  

Once again, Thank you for serving and preaching the Gospel! They truly thrive and thirst for the word. They are all grateful for  providing them a "service" at the park!

God bless!

  To make the event a success, Venture is seeking donations of slightly loved clothing ranging from Pre-K through High School , please no holes or stains.  The church is also in need of school supplies and backpacks to pass out to the children.  Venture will be accepting donations until August 3rd.

God Provides!

Matthew 6:31-32 KJV
"31Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
 32(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things".
   On Saturday, April 7th, a struggling family decided to ease their stress by spending quality time playing at the park with their little ones.  A father and mother with heavy hearts wondering how they were going to feed their children that night; were unaware that at the park, God would provide their hungry, quench their first, and cloth their children. The family now knows they don't have to worry about missing a meal, God will provide!

  The family was blessed by their needs being provided and the heaviness of life lifted off their shoulders . The Fox family and Terry were able to be apart of the blessing, by God using them to serve His people, they too were truly blessed!

God is GREAT, Amen! Serving is a blessing, not a burden of a commitment!

Thank you for serving and changing lives!
