On Thursday, May 31, four St. Louis area Disciples congregations helped purchase, prepare, and serve a BBQ lunch for residents and staff at Cooper House, a residential care facility for people living with HIV and AIDS. Cooper House is a part of Doorways, a St. Louis-based organization providing “Housing, Health, and Hope” for people living with HIV.
More than twenty members of Centennial Christian Church, Memorial Boulevard Christian Church, Union Avenue Christian Church, and Webster Groves Christian Church helped cook and serve hot dogs, brats, hamburgers, BBQ chicken, and BBQ ribs. Church members also brought delicious desserts for the event. Residents, staff, and volunteers had a great time, eating, talking, and getting to know one another. Doorways staff and members of the four congregations have already begun discussing the next event!
Thanks to Rev. Dr. Jeff Moore, pastor of WGCC, for information and photo.
