Love Your Neighbor Dinners

The Neoga Grace United Methodist Church Mission Committee has established its Love Your Neighbor Dinners program, a “nurture and outreach” endeavor through which 20 complimentary meals are delivered each week to a mix of GUMC members (nurture) and members of the rest of the Neoga community (outreach).

Prepared by Country Catering in Charleston, Ill. at a cost of just $6 individually or $24-28 for a full family of four, these meals allow us to not only share the love of Christ with our neighbors but also double as a well-being check during these trying times.

During 2020, funding for the Love Your Neighbor dinners was provided by a grant from the Southeastern Illinois Community Foundation Covid-19 Relief Fund grant; this was a hugely beneficial supplement to money from the Missions Committee as well as gifts from individual donors.

As we transition to 2021, we are hoping to continue this program. See the graphic below for details on how you can get involved!
