A Vision Shared
A vision to feed the people of Findlay was given to Sara Hunziker, but she didn’t know how to achieve it. Then she discovered people with similar goals.
When Pastor Ruth Solo first came to St. Andrew’s, she noticed that its Fellowship Hall had an outside door near the serving window of the kitchen — an opportunity to break bread with the congregation and its neighbors.
Linda Laux wants to evangelize the Good News and share fellowship with others in the community, especially those in downtown Findlay. When working in a Toledo soup kitchen, she saw the potential to share meals at St. Andrew’s.
Bev Atkins volunteers at the City Mission. Howard and Doris Wymer are under the misconception that they are “retired” after spending careers working in food services. Carol and Kevin Fitzpatrick returned from a mission trip to the Dominican Republic.
Sara started sharing her vision with these people, but Who started them talking? Our wonderful Father!
On the 3rd Sunday of September 2001, the first community dinner was served at St. Andrew’s UMC.
