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 Dinner Ministry has been blessed with a grant from the Murrieta Hot Springs Walmart! The grant was made out for thousand dollars to help fund the ministry's needs. What a blessing, thank you Jesus!

The funds will be used for the paper products for the 2012 year, tents, sleeping bags, new socks, hygiene items for the Christmas Eve service, and an emergency fund. Two hundred will be set-aside to stock-up the food pantry for those who call the church for assistance. Best of all, 100% of all the donations will go right back to the community to those in need.

The ministry also earned 184.00 for the Chick-Fli-A fundraiser! Thank you to all those who came out to make the fundraiser a success!

May God bless your day!

Fall/Winter Numbers

With the recent chill in the air, we are seeing a drop in the number of friends attending our dinners.
Life Groups should adjust the meals to feed about 30 people tops. On average there have been 10-20 attendees since the October 29th dinner.

Some of our friends live at the Outhouse camping site on the other side of the lake. With the colder temperatures and daylight savings, those who live there have stop coming for their safety.

With the nip in the air our friends our requesting coffee to help take the bite off. The red smaller jug is for coffee or hot coco. Something warm would bring them so much joy!

Our friends are still thirsty for the word of Christ, warm their souls with a cup of sermon or testimony!

Thank you for serving!
