Just recently, we’ve added a brand new outreach and fellowship opportunity at Church of the Holy Trinity. It’s called Soup After School, and it means what the name says. From 4-6pm on the first Tuesday of every month, we invite you to come on in to the Parish Hall so you can sit down with us and our neighbors for a free meal of soup, bread, a drink and something sweet. There is always something fun for the kids to do, and for us grown-ups it’s a safe, warm place to gather and get to know one another!
Soup After School began on November 4, 2014 and just had its second run on December 2. This ministry is the brainchild of John Zanka and his sister Sandy. They make the soup (January’s will be Turkey Noodle) and have painted the wooden sign out in front of the church. Their mother, MaryAnn, comes along to keep the two of them in line! From OC, the convenience store across the street, have come soda and brownies.

Meanwhile, the team of Amy Stajkowski, Pat Zanka, Susan Adamek and Kathy Molnar are continuing the work they began with the neighborhood children this past summer. Some work behind the scenes and others “out in front” to engage the kids in activities that tie in with the worship life of the church. For All Souls’ Day, the children made memory cards to reflect on their departed loved ones. For St. Nicholas’ Day, the children made holiday treats.
After clearing away the dishes, we all troop into the church for a 6:30pm Eucharist. Our hope is that the transition from supper table to communion table will become yet another way in which we can offer our neighbors a taste of the life we share in Christ. Pray with us that in that taste both we and our neighbors will see that the Lord is good!
