Bereavement Ministry

Coordinator - Laurie Davenport

Laurie will notify the  Committee Head when there
has been a death and a meal needs to be planned.  She will provide the
day, time, location, and expected number to prepare to serve.

These committee heads  will plan, organize, serve, and clean-up after both funeral meals
s well as all-church fellowship meals that occur during the year.  Each of these ladies will
select a group of 8-10 helpers to assist them with the preparation and serving
of these meals.

For funerals, a set menu will be prepared and served each time.  The church will
furnish the meat, usually ham and/or fried chicken and green beans.  The ladies
of the congregation will be asked to furnish the remaining side dishes.  The
following people will be responsible for arranging for the side dishes:

Bonnie Patterson - Potato Casserole (Recipe provided)
Cory Jones - Green Salad
Lesa Reed - Gelatin Salad
Wendy Smith-Rolls
Linda Barnes - Desserts

The ladies of the congregation will be given the opportunity to sign-up for
which funeral meal item they prefer to prepare.  When called, they will
prepare the same item for each funeral.  In some cases, it will be possible
to keep on hand the ingredients you will need for your particular items.  This
will make it much simpler to plan these meals.  We will always know what to
expect, how much food to expect, not have large amounts of food left over, and most
importantly, we won't be nervous about having enough food.
There are sign-up sheets on the table in the rear of the auditorium sign-up
for the side dishes.  Please participate in this ministry as we are trying to make
it as simple as possible for all of you.  

Thanks for your cooperation.
