Share the gift of service by cooking up a storm in your hall kitchen for the elderly and also for those families with young children. It is a real blessing to receive the gift of a meal at your doorstep.
Select families/individuals who accept your help. Allocate 2 people on ‘sandwich making’ duty at your church hall/space (you could end up with 20 people making sandwiches and filling cordial bottles or thermos, if you have 10 groups!). The remaining 4 people head off and work on blitzing someone’s backyard! When lunch arrives, sit with the family or elderly person and enjoy a picnic at lunchtime to give everyone enough energy to finish the job that was started!
Their time is freer without students in their midst. Cook a BBQ of egg & bacon muffins, some slices, fresh fruit, juice, tea and coffee. Watch the teachers interact with you and each other. It’s a real staff morale booster!
The Longest Lutheran Lunch is an annual event of the Lutheran Church of Australia. It is an opportunity for people to connect and re-connect with us. Through God's gifts of service and hospitality we invite and welcome those who may not feel comfortable coming to worship but are happy to join us in a social setting. Let's bless them with our love, as God has blessed us.
