Calling All Cooks!

Calling all cooks to provide a meal the 1st Wednesday of every month for the residents of Dismas House. Up to 3 people are needed each month to make an entree, salad and dessert. The meal can be cooked at home or at Dismas House. Dinner starts at 6 p.m. For more information please talk to Irma and Woody Graf, Kyle Mattson, or Gisela Jones Jones after worship or call the church office.  The residents at Dismas House are former prisoners who are trying to make a new start in their lives. All are non-violent offenders.

“Living in community accomplishes the Dismas House mission of reconciliation. Community is fundamentally about relationship and it is precisely the relationship between the offender and their community that is broken, first by the crime committed and subsequently by the resulting incarceration. In reconciliation, wholeness is restored to the former prisoner and to society.” (read more at www.dismasofvermont.org )

Sitting down for a common meal with the residents at Dismas House is of mutual benefit to the ones who provide a meal and the ones who partake of the meal. Give it a try!
