A new outreach program has been started by First Christian Church in Troy – a free Community Breakfast that occurs on the second Saturday of each month between 8 am and 11 am. The first breakfast was held in October and drew more than 40 individuals for a hot and tasty breakfast, with plenty of warm fellowship. The November breakfast, held on Saturday the 12th, served more than 65 individuals from the Lincoln County area.
The breakfast was the brainchild of Naomi Uy-Moore, wife of Senior Minister Rev. Dr. Jeffrey. T. Moore. There is no cost for those who come, and the meal is prepared by a wide variety of church members who share in the responsibility. The church adds the breakfast to its other outreach emphases including Matthew 25, a monthly feeding program for those in need, and the church’s heavy involvement in the Bread For Life Food Pantry, based in Troy, in which both adult and youth volunteers from the church actively participate. The church is located at 1302 Boone Street, and for any questions, you are asked to call 636-528-7322.
