Since January 2006, we’ve continued to serve our now famous French toast, sausage, and egg bake neighborhood breakfast on the fourth Saturday of each month from 9:00-10:30 a.m. in the Hillside Room.
This free breakfast is supported by our church budget and by members who have made this a priority beyond their regular offerings. People watch the grocery ads and contribute sausages, juices, butter, margarine, and syrup as these items go on sale. All of this helps us stay on target with costs -- which seem to keep increasing. Another way to help is to come along on a fourth Saturday and be part of the serving team. We have a faithful core and newcomers are always welcome. [pictures – breakfast]
During the breakfast, a homemade poster with image of Christ standing in a food line hangs on the kitchen wall in view of the servers with the prayer: “Lord Jesus, we know you’ll be coming through the line today. Help us to serve you well.”
In times of inclement weather, guests and servers sometimes brave the ice and snow to get to Gloria Dei on a Saturday morning. We’re thankful we have never had to cancel. There is a growing need. The number of plates served has risen over the years to around 220.
We do have a good time, the rewards are priceless. Come join us between 8 and 8:30 on the 4th Saturday. You are also welcome to just come and enjoy a great breakfast between 9 and 10:30. We have the best French toast in town.
