Even when school’s out, we want to remember the need that exists in our community to feed hungry children. Lunch on the Lawn (LOL) is our effort to help meet that need in the summer. Every Wednesday during summer, we partner with Johnston county schools to serve a free lunch to kids and their families in the picnic area of P.K. Vyas Community Park in Benson. Volunteers eat as well and are encouraged to do so alongside our guests; in this way, we view LOL as not only a meal-service ministry, but as a relationship-building ministry. In addition to lunch, we also have games and activities to encourage interaction amongst neighborhood kids and to give their parents an opportunity to share a break together.
LOL takes place every Wednesday during the summer from 10:00am to 1:30pm. If you are interested in volunteering, you can come by the church at 10:00am. Whether it’s fixing sandwiches, making lemonade, packing up the vehicles, serving meals or setting up games, we’ll find a way to plug you in!
