Soup Sisters

SOUP_SISTER_2.jpgThe Heavenly Rest Soup Sisters reach within the church membership and minister to those in need of support.

 

Members often need to be comforted because of sickness, death of a loved one, or other circumstances. This became a frequent topic of conversation as Leslie Boykin, Jackie Batjer, and Sue McWilliams went on morning walks. Soon, the idea was born to take soup and cornbread to parishioners as part of a new ministry.

 

Leslie had served on the parish’s Outreach Committee for a number of years and dedicated herself in many ways to reaching out to the community and the world. When she died in October 2004, the Soup Sisters vowed to maintain her legacy through the group.

 

SOUP_SISTER.jpgThe group has become a sisterhood within the church. Since January, 2004, the first month of cooking and deliveries, the group has celebrated happy times, mourned losses, survived personal crises, and stood together. 

 

Soup Sisters meet in the Gerhart Hall kitchen on the second Monday of each month from September through May. Some of the Sisters are excellent cooks, some are excellent organizers, and some are great drivers. All the Sisters enjoy serving together and enjoying special moments with those who receive soup.

 

All are invited to participate in this ministry.

 

Ministry location: Gerhart Hall kitchen at Heavenly Rest Episcopal Church

Ministry Hours: 9:00 a.m. on the second Monday of each month from September through May.
