Ascensions' Soup Kitchen Ministry

“Nourishing the Needy”

Outreach is an integral part of our church’s mission and one of the ways we do it is by providing a nourishing meal to needy citizens in the community.

The ministry started in 1994 when 3ea. members of the Affirmative Aging Ministry, namely, Rev. Deacon Miriam Prat, Grace Sargeant and Helen Carr, launched a feeding program to cook and distribute soup to people in need. Many more church members are helping now and the distribution is up to approximately 100ea. servings each Friday.
