Over the past four years, thanks to outstanding ongoing volunteer efforts, the SUPPER at St. Martin’s program has flourished!
In Jarrett’s role as Dean of the Wissahickon Deanery, he has shared the positive impact of the SUPPER at St. Martin’s program with members of the Deanery. Our lead SUPPER evangelist, Debra Roberts then met with several churches.
After learning the specifics of what is involved, Christ Church & St. Michael’s in Germantown and Grace Epiphany in Mt. Airy are launching SUPPER programs at their churches!
Both communities provide wonderful opportunities for outreach and fellowship. Over 26% of Germantown residents live in poverty, with 12.8% living in deep poverty. Deep poverty is defined as a family of four living on less than $11,000/year. The community surrounding Mt. Airy includes a mix with retired, elderly individuals, and young families, with many living on fixed incomes and/or limited resources.
Both parishes will follow the model that has been created at St. Martin’s:
Both communities are very excited about the prospect of welcoming SUPPER guests to their churches, expanding fellowship to the Germantown and Mt. Airy communities, and growing their congregations.
