Join us as we provide a warm, safe place to enjoy a hot breakfast and fellowship for those in need in our community. FUMC Volunteers cook, serve and share breakfast with 150-200 of our homeless neighbors.
Adults, youth and children can all participate: there are a number of ways in which you may be involved. Join a team in the kitchen preparing pancakes and eggs; help serve our guests; bring a breakfast item from home or simply provide fellowship by joining our guests for breakfast.
If you’d like to help, join us 8 a.m. in the Terrace Room.

Twelve consistent volunteers led by Aaron Johnson and the Logunstov family who cook the eggs, sausage, grits and pancakes, helped by a backup of four or five people who come in as needed.
The Dining Room Crew
Led by Andrea Johnson and Pat Ronten, they set up, serve the food and clean-up, along with a group of forty to fifty more who come in to help on both a consistent and random basis.
