Grace Café is a restaurant style community meal serving our communities most vulnerable residents, our neighbors currently experiencing homelessness and struggling with food insecurity. Every Sunday from 5:30 to 7:00 PM, Arch Street welcomes 200 – 250 of our neighbors for devotions, dinner and fellowship in a welcoming, safe and judgment free space. Devotions are held in the Sanctuary and the Fellowship Meal in Nichols Hall (the lower level fellowship hall).
Grace Café has grown with each passing year. We hosted our first Health Fair this spring connecting our Grace Café congregation with life sustaining community health resources in a safe, welcoming and familiar space. As our program has grown and so has our need for partners to share the journey with our community. Volunteers who wish to prepare and serve the Grace Café Fellowship Meal with support from the Arch Street Volunteer Support Team are encouraged to contact Deaconess Darlene DiDomineck at firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-568-6250.
