As part of the mission of the Douglass United Methodist Church, Wednesday Night Dinners were started several years ago. In sharing God's love through fellowship, the Wednesday Night Community Dinners are open to everyone. Most people arrive at around 5:30 PM although the kitchen stays open until around 6:15 PM. The fellowship of the church members is a needed refresher during the week, and a joy to share with others. A prayer and an announcement time is used to share joys and concerns and upcoming activities.
A container is available for contributions to the meal as well as the many food donations that are contributed. Contributions, while greatly appreciated, are not requested or expected in order to partake of the meal.
To expand our outreach further, church members decided to take out meals to shut ins and "needy" persons in the form of carry out meals.
Anyone may request to be put on our take-out meal listing by calling the church office during the week before the meal at (316) 747-3134. Please give your name and phone number. The carry out meals are prepared by church staff and delivered before the meal begins at 5:30 PM.
