Kitchen

Kitchen Ministries provides numerous opportunities to Share Christ’s Love Through Faith. Many volunteers are always needed to work in the kitchen, on the serving line, setting tables, and cleaning up. Fellowship is enjoyed and friendships grow. Additional volunteers are always needed who are willing to become familiar with our church kitchen and learn how they can become more involved in our active ministry. Kitchen Ministries is the main trunk of the various groups that prepare and serve food. Perhaps participation in one or more of the following branches of Kitchen Ministries provides an opportunity for you to help in the sharing of Christ’s love through service at Faith UMC.

Hospitality

This group provides hospitality and breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner for Greensburg District events as requested and accepted. They organize the annual “Wild Game Night” in January and the group has organized and prepared the annual “First Responders Breakfast” in August. They organize and prepare the sample plates of food for the Seder explanation presented by Jeff Kipp and his “Messiah in Passover” program.

Funeral Luncheons

Funeral meals are provided as a service to Faith families who request a funeral luncheon in our Fellowship Hall. Volunteers are needed to bake desserts, prepare deviled eggs, provide salad fixings, and help prepare and serve the meal.

Apple Dumplings

Many volunteers are needed to help in various capacities over at least two days a week for two weeks in late summer so that apple dumplings are available to sell during Delmont Daze, the Pilgrimage, and Lenten Fish & More Dinners.   Dough needs to be made, measured & rolled into individual balls, and then flattened in preparation for the apples. Apples need to be peeled and cored. The apple dumplings are created, baked, and individually-boxed or placed in boxes of six.    Boxes need to be assembled, and cinnamon sauce is made and divided into individual containers.

Pilgrimage

This event takes place the first weekend of December. Volunteers are needed in the kitchen, on the line, helping wash dishes, setting up for the event, and cleaning up afterwards. Bakers are needed to make pies and cookies at home for the display of desserts when close to 2000 people could come through our food line over the course of the 2-day event.

Fish Fry

Lots of volunteers are needed to have this 6-week event run smoothly each Friday during Lent. There is always a day of prep on Thursday when tables are set, food line is set up, tartar sauce and cocktail sauce are made and placed in individual containers, cabbage is cut for haluski, cole slaw is made, strawberries are cut for the pies, clam chowder soup is made, etc. Pies and cookies are needed for the display of desserts on the line. Many volunteers are needed each Friday to cut the buns, plate the desserts, wash the dishes, prepare the food, work on the line, and clean up.

Caring Hearts & Hands

The Caring Hearts & Hands Ministry of FUMC is currently under the leadership of Marcy W. and Cindy P. This ministry provides prepared nutritional meals meals to those individuals or families who could benefit from some meal assistance. Small groups of helpers periodically assemble in the church kitchen to prepare soups, main dishes, and desserts. Those meals are frozen and eventually packed into large colorful shopping bags that are given to the intended recipients as a way to demonstrate “Sharing Christ’s Love Through Faith.” If you become aware of a Faith member or friend who could use a bag of frozen meals from Caring Hearts & Hands, please let Marcy, Cindy, or the church office know.

UMW & tabitha circle

Faith UMW was chartered in January 28, 1988. They currently meet at 1:15pm the second Tuesday of February, March, April, May, June, September, October, and November.  (POSTPONED DURING PANDEMIC)

The Tabitha Circle is the "hands" of the UMW. In Acts 9:36 we read, “Now in Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (which translated in Greek is called Dorcas); this woman was abounding with deeds of kindness and charity which she continually did.” She is the only woman in Scripture to be called a disciple. Her acts of goodness and kindness were done to help others in the name of Christ.
(CURRENTLY MEETING VIA ZOOM EVERY SATURDAY @ 9:00AM)

Sonshine time & nursery

Sonshine Time
Here at Faith UMC, we understand that young children sometimes have a difficult time sitting still for long periods of time. Sonshine Time is held in the Isaac room and starts at 10:15 a.m but you can join us anytime during the service. This program is for children in K – 6th grade.  Join us as we learn about the Bible and God’s plan for us.  And there is snack time too!! Ask an usher for more information. (POSTPONED DURING PANDEMIC)

Nursery
Faith UMC has a wonderful nursery filled with toys that you may utilize whenever the need arises.  There are rocking chairs and a changing station. Plus, there is a speaker system so you can still enjoy listening to the service while your little one sleeps or plays. Ask an usher for information.
