Cooks will have the meal ready to be served when the servers arrive. One volunteer must have a short devotional and prayer ready to be said before the meal. Once the meal is served, everyone returns to the church on the bus about 5:30 pm. Children who have completed 4th grade are welcome to serve with their parents.
