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!

The Numbers Are Growing!

There is a increase number of people who are coming to the park to fill their stomachs with food and their soul with the word of God!

The Counties deal with the homeless crises by sweeping the people under the rug. Instead of dealing with the issue, the counties push the homeless from one county to another. San Diego has recently swept through and pushed the homeless into Riverside County. The dinners at Lake Elsinore went from 40 (40 being the high) to 75 plates a feeding.

With the increase of numbers, I suggest making the meals simple. Below is an sample menu:
Sloppy Joes (6-8lbs of meat) / Hot Dogs (50-70)  / Spaghetti (4-5 lbs of pasta) / Chili Dogs / Stew
Corn / Peas  / Green Beans
Chip / Salad / Cut-up Fruit / Rice / Beans
Have apples/ oranges available
If you like some sort of individual wrapped baked good 
Thank you for your warm hearts and serving those in need!
