It is such a joy to do something for those who served our country.
We enjoyed our chance to provide a meal at the Veteran's Drop-In-Center in Rockford.
Planning the menu, making the food, getting ready to make the trip, unpacking and getting it set out, there's a lot to do...
All the preparation has been done and it's time to let the folks in to enjoy. The table is ready....
We had 19 volunteers to help with preparation and serving. It all goes smoother with lots of willing hands and we had them!
We served about 75 guests on that day and had only a small amount of food leftover. All went smoothly.
Somebody has to make sure things are cleaned up at the end. Mark is making sure Paul is on the job...

Pauline Lawhorn was a long-time member of Rockton United Methodist Church and at the beginning of January 2022 a memorial to her was placed in the narthex of our Sanctuary. Pauline was known for welcoming visitors and for her tireless dedication to spreading the gospel. She organized numerous events/get-togethers and taught the adult Sunday-School class for many years. Her favorite scripture was the Great Commission of Matthew 28:19 ". . . go and make disciples of all nations . . ." Her daughter, Judie Heinschel, and husband, Bob Lawhorn, stand on either side of the stained glass portrait of Jesus and the Great Commission that will now remind everyone as they leave our Sanctuary of this important work that she loved so much.
