Episcopal Church of the Heavenly Rest
Breakfast on Beech Street
BOBS – Breakfast on Beech Street

Four area churches host an early morning meal for working men and women, families and senior citizens, as well as homeless and disabled individuals. Most of those who receive meals are regulars, who count on the meals on Beech Street to get them started each day. For some, the meals from BOB's are all the food they have to eat that day.


BOBS has operated out of the kitchen of First Christian Church, at North Third and Beech Street, since May 15, 1996. Volunteers from First Christian Church, Church of the Heavenly Rest, First Central Presbyterian Church, and First United Methodist Church prepare and serve the food. Throughout the years, several grateful clients have joined the serving lines helping out wherever they can and being an inspiration to all.


Ministry Location: First Christian Church Perry Center, North 3rd and Beech Street, Abilene, Texas 79603

Ministry Hours: Every Monday (year round) from 5:30 to 7:30 a.m.
