Edgecomb Community Church holds delicious community suppers in the Fellowship Hall, There’s a friendly spirit as people gather, browse in the thrift shop, check out the items on the free table, pick up a book for summer reading or simply share summer experiences. There are often people from away who become friends before dessert is served.
This year there will be a total of two suppers to raise money to support local helping agencies.
People gather to enjoy the homemade baked beans, casseroles, salads and desserts. They come to meet old friends and make new ones.
This year’s (2017) Community Suppers are scheduled for Saturday, August 19, 2017 with the Edgecomb Fire Department and Saturday, October 21, 2017 Harvest Supper. Each supper starts at 5:00 p.m. with service until 6:00 p.m. or until the food runs out. The charge for the suppers is $8.00 for adults and $3.00 for children. The church Fellowship Hall is wheelchair accessible.
Over the years the community suppers have provided a way for people to come together to support each other and to support worthy community and global causes. Who knows who you might meet while sharing baked beans, a favorite family casserole or a delicious homemade dessert! You could be dining with a fisherman from Boothbay Harbor, a fireman from Edgecomb or a businessman from Damariscotta. The person pouring your coffee could be a retired nuclear physicist, a caregiver with the Eldercare Network or a local television personality. Community suppers provide not only a great meal but also a chance to be a part of the caring community in action.
Welcome, it’s always good food and good fellowship for a good cause
