Dayspring UMC had its second table running in 2014. It is scheduled to close the second week of November 2014. It was very successful.
The person helped was a single mother with four kids that had just recently left a bad marriage. She came to the table scared and wondering how she would get through each day. The Dayspring table helped her find a good job, housing and also medical coverage. She is now on solid ground and is confident in going forward.
There was a meeting that included Open Table People, Dayspring Table Members and new Pastors Jeff and Joel to brainstorm how we might take this mission to the next level.
In October 2014, an Open Table Committee was formed to help run this mission. In November 2014, we started to recruit for our next tables. The goal is to get at least one table formed before the end of 2014 and start meetings at the beginning of 2015.
