Cook n' Serve

Cook n' Serve

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you  gave me something to drink” Matthew 25:35

Cook and Serve Ministry provide meals in the Lufkin community on the second and third Saturday of every month. Meals are served in Herty Primary on the second Saturday and meals are served on Second Street on the third Saturday. Meals include beans, rice, King Ranch Chicken and fruits, vegetables, and desserts.

Volunteers spend time cooking these meals, setting up, serving, and cleaning up afterwards. This ministry is unique in several ways. Before meals are served all present gather to have a devotional. What a blessed way to share the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Volunteers also have the opportunity of developing friendships with those they serve and share the message of God’s love. Some volunteers bring their family along to help serve. Another great opportunity for children to learn how to be the hands and feet of Jesus.

We invite you all to help this ministry. If you are able to contribute a meal, we would love your support. You can also donate specific items, help serve meals on Saturday mornings, pray for the ministry, lead a devotional, or donate money to the church for the “Cook and Serve” fund.  

We thank you all for making this ministry a blessing to many and also for your generous support.

An Evening in Old Bethlehem

Bring your family, join your friends and step 2,000 years into the past, as we recreate the old city of Bethlehem. As you stroll the streets of the ancient marketplace, you’ll see how the residents lived and worked. You’ll meet the inhabitants of the town where Jesus was born and learn about the crafts and skills of olden times. Your visit will become especially significant as you experience the joy of the Nativity.

An Evening in Old Bethlehem will be held on Friday December 2 & Saturday December 3 from 6:00 PM – 8:00PM at the George H. Henderson Expo Center in Lufkin.
