PEACE  DALE  CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH DINNER TABLE

For many years, a well-balanced sit-down meal has been served every Wednesday evening from 4:30 to 6 pm in Fellowship Hall at Peace Dale Congregational Church.  Whether you were hungry or are looking for companionship while you shared a meal, you were welcome at our dinner table.

 

Since the COVID pandemic, thanks to the generosity of the PDCC congregants, the Dinner Table has been dishing up and packaging meals every Wednesday and Friday for folks all over Narragansett, South Kingstown, North Kingstown, and Charlestown.  Joining with St. Francis has also broadened our reach considerably and provided another support for many in our community. Because we are reaching more folks than we can accommodate in Fellowship Hall, we will continue with take out through the summer.

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/ Friday 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 contacting Darlene at dhermes44@gmail.com   or Pete at peteswain1956@gmail.com

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.

Welcome House of South County has been providing emergency and transitional housing to homeless individuals and families from our local area for almost 30 years.  They also run a daily soup kitchen which is open to the public.  Every October Peace Dale Congregational Church sponsors a pumpkin sale at the church.  A tractor trailer load of pumpkins, grown on an Indian Reservation, are delivered to the church and sold throughout the month of October.  The church gets 35% of the money from the sales and 100% of any donations.  We have been able to collect and donate an average of $10,000 to Welcome House each year.
