Nicholasville United Methodist Church serves a weekly free meal to the community called Manna Meal every Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. We are always in need of volunteers to cook, serve, greet, and clean up. Another special area that we could always use more people is in the area of visiting the guests who are being served. Many of these people have great stories to tell and sometimes they need someone just to listen. This is a great opportunity to experience ministry with people up close and personal.
If you are interested please contact Adele McKinney at email@example.com or you can contact the church office at 859.885.4481 and ask who you need to talk to about volunteering for Manna Meal.
