Amazing Grace is one of six Ballard Congregations, along with Sustainable Ballard, providing Ballard Sunday Dinners offering weekly meals with dignity to our neighbors in need. During the time of COVID, we are continuing to provide take-out meals to about 50 guests, from 5-6 pm on Sundays at Ballard First Lutheran Church, at NW 65th and 20th NW.
Our current goal is to raise $2,000 to fund Amazing Grace's monthly meals into the first months of 2021. Your gift will help us to continue these nourishing meals, which are very appreciated by our guests. If you would like to join us in serving the meals (outdoors, with masks, gloves, hand sanitizer), please write to email@example.com.
A bit of history: In 2016 we learned Sunday evenings were the only time in the week that a seated, indoor dinner was not being offered in our neighborhood. We joined together to fill a gap in services that each organization couldn't handle alone, and began serving dinners every Sunday in May of that year. Ballard First Lutheran Church graciously offered to house the project. Participating communities are providing the meals, and fundraising separately for the food. Sustainable Ballard is recruiting additional volunteers.
Participating faith communities are Northwest Christian Church, St. Paul's United Church of Christ, Our Redeemer's Lutheran Church, Ballard First Lutheran Church, Trinity United Methodist Church, and Amazing Grace Spiritual Center, with Sustainable Ballard volunteers assisting our teams. Thank you for your support!
