Help Bay Shore Church Serve a Meal

On the 3rd Wednesday each month, Bay Shore Church volunteers prepare and serve and a hot meal with those who visit COA.  You can help by donating food; helping prepare the meal in the Bay Shore Church kitchen; transport the meal to COA, or serve the meal on-site.

To ensure that all church members may participate, there are
several levels of participation: make a casserole, make dessert,
serve meal, shopper, or monetary donations. The menu for the
month is put in the weekly church newsletter and an announcement
is made during one Sunday prior to the actual service day.

Meal prep in the Bay Shore Church kitchen 2:00-3:30 pm.
