Immediate needs: coffee, powdered creamer and sugar
Early every weekday morning, a team of volunteers gathers in the All Saints’ kitchen to prepare a hot breakfast for an average of nearly 100 people in need. What started in late 2007 as a “temporary” ministry to extend through the Lenten season and served four people in its first week of existence, has continued ever since. Saints’ Brew serves breakfast to individuals, families with children, those employed who are food insecure and homeless persons. It is staffed by volunteers – more are always needed – and funded entirely by contributions.
“Our faith teaches us that when we serve those in need, we are serving Jesus Christ himself,” says the Rev. Paul Stephens, former Rector of All Saints’. This remarkable ministry, unique in the Tupelo area, defines All Saints’ identity as a church that seeks to identify and respond to the needs not only of its own members but of the community at large and the wider world. We believe this is what God calls us to do.
