Volunteer to Serve Dinner at Broadway Baptist Church's Agape Meal on October 15th.

SGCS faculty would like to extend an invitation to the entire school community to help with volunteer efforts in serving meals to the homeless at Broadway Baptist Church's Agape Meal on Thursday, Oct. 15th. Children ages 9 and up can join their parents in volunteering at the Agape Meal. Children cannot be dropped off, they must be accompanied by one of their parents. "This is a great way of doing community outreach and living out our baptismal call of serving others in need," commented Mrs. Gehrig.

The meal is served at 6:00 pm and volunteers should arrive at 5:30 pm for a brief orientation. Broadway Baptist Church is located at 305 W. Broadway Ave, Fort Worth 76104. Enter through the main entrance on St. Louis St which is east of the church building.

"The son of God knew what it was to be homeless. What is was to start life without a roof over his head." - Pope Francis, September 24, 2015
