We are thrilled to report that we served over 180+ friends and neighbors at our July/August dinners. Thanks to all who helped make these days such a success. Come and be part of our next meals by setting up, serving, bringing side dishes or desserts, cleaning up, or just coming to be in community with our neighbors! Join us from 6:00-8:00PM on September 6 for Burgers and Dogs or Something Yummy!
Free Community Meals
One of the signature outreach efforts FPCE has organized in recent years helps to live out our mission to love our neighbors. First organized in 2013, the first Wednesday of the month beginning in June and running through the summer is a time when the members of the congregation open up the side lawn to the community to offer a free dinner. All of the food items are provided by the church with side dishes and desserts brought by FPCE members. Volunteers from Scout Troop 23 regularly assist with set up and tear down. Elders Jim Segedy and Tyler McGuigan work the grill, a volunteer team organizes the kitchen, and we enjoy a wonderful mix of guests from the Edgewood and Wilkinsburg areas who typically outnumber those from the congregation.
