West Dundee church to host Hilltop Community Supper Dec. 11
First Congregational Church of Dundee hosts "Hilltop Community Suppers," an outreach effort that offers a free monthly meal served restaurant-style on the second Tuesday of each month.
The suppers are open to any community member who would enjoy a warm, home-cooked meal and/or a welcoming social experience -- veterans, active duty military families, food pantry patrons, homeless individuals, single parents and seniors.
The next free supper will be offered from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 11, in the church narthex, 900 S. Eighth St. in West Dundee.
The December meal will feature a seven layer salad, roll, Pat's chicken supreme, vegetable, mashed potatoes, cranberries, peppermint ice cream sundae and assorted drinks. Children's and senior portions are available.
The Dundee Middle School Band and Jacobs High School Goldenaires (madrigal singers) will perform.
The suppers are run entirely by volunteers; more than 70 members and friends of the church have signed up to prepare, clean and serve and students in First Congregational Church's middle and high school youth groups have volunteered to wait tables.
Dinners are offered at no cost, but freewill donations are gladly accepted at each supper to help sustain the meals and any additional contributions are accepted at any time. Come join this gathering of community members and witness the fellowship of a meal where everyone is valued and no one ever has to eat alone.
"The Church on the Hill" is located at Route 31 and Angle Tarn in West Dundee. For details, call the church at (847) 426-2161 ext. 202 or visit www.fccdundee.com.
