Events & Volunteer Opportunities
Chili and Baked Goods for Trinity Table. It is time once again for the annual Tucker First Trinity Table assembly lines! As part of a church-wide mission project, Tucker First goes to the Trinity Kitchen in downtown Atlanta loaded down good food and willing volunteers. This year, Action Ministries has asked for chili, homemade cookies, baked potatoes, and some sandwiches.
You can participate in this mission project three ways:
Make some sandwiches and assemble “To Go” bag! The fun day for the sandwich making is Saturday, January 27 from 9-10 am. No experience necessary, all supplies provided. We will be making oinly 250 sandwiches, but we are also assembling “To Go” bags. These bags will have canned packaged items in them).
Make some chili or baked potatoes! Tucker First this year is providing chili and baked potatoes. Food drop off will be on Saturday, January 27 (same as a sandwich making). Here is the link to the suggested chili recipe - http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/easy-chili
Make some homemade cookies. We need cookies of all kinds! Please pre-pack two per bag.
Volunteer at the soup kitchen. Twenty-five volunteers are needed to go to the Trinity Table on Sunday, January 28. Jobs include heating the chili, tea makers, greeters, and servers. The team usually leaves the church around 10:30 am and returns around 3:00 pm. We will carpool, so don't worry about transportation.
