A web conferencing session ("webinar") was held on Thursday, April 18, to discuss Lunch for the Soul–Building Community and the Missional Church. It was hosted by the NEXT Church (www.nextchurch.net) and is a conference discussing our own Lunch for the Soul.
A number of people from around the country participated in the webinar with Rebecca Messman (Trinity) and Edwin Andrade (Riverside) answering questions from anyone who participated. Discussions included the purpose, history and joys of this ministry as well as how to start a missional church in your own community.
The entire conference lasted about 1 1/4 hours and is found by going to this URL:

Our community food pantry, now celebrating over 40 years of service, has a new website (http://www.linkagainsthunger.org) and new logo (see above) thanks to volunteers from Leadership Fairfax.
LINK has partnered with the Capital Area Food Bank and sponsors a Mobile Food Pantry the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 3-6 PM in the Christ the Redeemer Church parking lot (46833 Harry Byrd Hwy., Sterling). Families will receive FREE food, which will vary each month depending on availability and season, but typically include fresh vegetables and fruit, bread, and specialty items. There are no restrictions such as income, place of residence, etc., for those picking up food.
Clients will bring their own shopping bags or containers. There is generally enough food to serve 100 or more families. If you are aware of anyone who could benefit from this service, please let them know.
