Brooklyn Feast

Sunday, November 18th from 6-8 p.m. 

As a church determined to love our neighborhood, we put on Brooklyn Feasts several times a year that are free and open to anyone, inspired by the Matthew 22 parable. Each time our doors are open in this way, we get a beautiful picture of the reconciliation, joy, and hospitality of heaven.

Our highest needs include:

  • Inviting the neighborhood: Groups will canvas the areas near the church to invite all of our neighbors to come and share a meal. There will be groups distributing invitations on the 11th, 17th, and 18th. Spanish speakers particularly helpful!

  • Bringing food: We need people to cook turkeys* and make sides/desserts.
    *The turkeys are purchased by the church, so all you need to do is pick it up and pop it in the oven. If you’ve never cooked a turkey before, that’s fine! It’s not as hard as it sounds and we’ll provide some basic instructions.

We also need people to help out in the following ways:

  • Setting up the space: We need help making the space welcoming and hospitable for all who walk through our doors. The commitment is just an hour or two before the feast kicks off.

  • Welcome and mingle: Make sure every person who comes is welcomed and connected to people. If you love to make new friends and facilitate conversations, this is the job for you!
