A well balance sit-down meal is served every Wednesday evening from 4:30 to 6 pm in Fellowship Hall at Peace Dale Congregational Church.  Whether you are hungry or are looking for companionship while you share a meal, you are welcome at our dinner table.

The dinner is prepared and served by teams of volunteers from our church and the community.  If you are interested in helping with this mission project,  a sign-up sheet and descriptions of available “positions” can be found on the kiosk in the fellowship hall. You may sign-up for one Wednesday a month–or several! Your “position” may be limited to an hour of service–or more! Please check it out and consider reaping the benefits of this opportunity!

You can also sign up by submitting the online  form. If a particular job is over or under subscribed we may give you a call.  Click here  for signing up online and a description of teams and jobs.

In coordination with the Welcome House of South County, the Peace Dale Congregational Church operates an emergency overflow homeless shelter in the church.  This service provides an additional 12 beds daily, including a breakfast each morning , during the winter months from November through March.

This program is made possible  by a grant from the State and additional funding through Peace Dale Congregational Church.    A team of volunteers from the church, along with a staff member from the Welcome House, work to provide the homeless clients with a clean, safe bed for the night and a breakfast to start their day.   Since we began this program in the fall of 2015, the overflow shelter has been  almost full nightly.   Our clients are respectful and very grateful for the support we provide.

This program helps provide clothing for children ages birth to 18 years old.  Clothing is distributed periodically through the Johnny Cake Center and specific referrals come from local schools and agencies aware of children who are in need of clothing .  Through generous donations and the assistance of volunteers to distribute the clothing,  this program has helped many children whose families are struggling to provide for them.[/column]
