God’s Kitchen, a ministry of the United Methodist churches in the Highspire/Middletown area, is now on hiatus for the foreseeable future. With rising COVID numbers, we are putting a pause on the meal. When COVID numbers go down, we intend to restart the meal.
On December 28, Evangelical will host God’s Kitchen at Wesley UMC at 6 PM. Our menu will be pork, sauerkraut, peas, mashed potatoes, and dessert. All are welcome. The meal is free.
After tomorrow, God’s Kitchen will be closed for the foreseeable future. Due to COVID concerns, the leadership is temporarily closing the meal until the situation improves. Please be on the look out for updates.
On Sunday, December 19, we celebrated our fifty year plus members. Last year we were not able to get a photo or recognizing them in worship due to the pandemic. We were thankful to get a picture and pray with them in worship.
Our Christmas Eve service will be at 7 PM on Friday, December 24. Evan’s choir will offer a short cantata “Glory to the Newborn King.” We will sing traditional Christmas hymns. The service will end with the singing of “Silent Night” with candlelight. All are welcome! Come join us celebrate the birth of Jesus.

During the hustle and bustle of Advent preparation, does the song lyric, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year” ever ring a bit hollow? Maybe we are looking ahead to a “Blue Christmas,” absent of loved ones. Perhaps the pandemic has just taken too much of a toll and we are exhausted. Or maybe every year we just struggle with the darkness of short December days.
To acknowledge this less jolly side of the holiday season, Deacon Megan is offering a meditative service of prayer and modern carols. We will remember the struggles that lie at the heart of the Christmas story. We will remember into the darkness of daily life, the light of Christ entered the world.
*This service will not be live-streamed or recorded.
