Lamb's Table feeds the needy

-A A +A

Kristy Pollard’s letter to the editor concerning "Lamb's Table" touched my heart and I would like to thank her for the kind words.
I would also like to expound on them. "Lamb’s Table" is more than one year old and has served more than 5,000 meals since its inception.
We offer a meal every Tuesday from 5 to 6 p.m. and everyone is invited to share a meal with us.
Meals are also delivered to those in the community who cannot come to the fellowship hall of Independence First United Methodist Church.
We are funded solely on donations from the churches, the community and individuals.
The Grayson County Lamb’s Table is made up of cooking crews from Independence First United Methodist Church, Bridle Creek Charge United Methodist Churches, Elk Creek Charge of United Methodist Churches, Oak Hill Academy, Young’s Chapel Baptist Church and a couple of ecumenical cooking crews who represent the community in general.
Every Tuesday as the fellowship hall and kitchen of the “church in the big curve” converts to “Lamb’s Table,” I stand amazed in the work of God to turn an ordinary meal and ordinary people into an extraordinary experience of love and fellowship. I am humbled and grateful.
Joan Blevins with “Feeding America” and the Southwest Virginia Food Bank will be at Independence First United Methodist Church at 10 a.m. Dec. 14 to talk about the possibility of a “mobile food pantry” for Grayson County.
Our county is so geographically spread out that not everyone has the capability of coming to Independence to participate in the food programs offered here.
Everyone is invited to attend this meeting. Our community must continue to explore ways to feed the least, the last, the lost, the lonely and the hungry.
