Trikepreacher Chapel

There are times when a deeper more private conversation with a Christian brother is needed, more than that which can be had in the dining area during lunch. Trikepreacher Chapel is just such an opportunity. From 12:00 -1:30 on Tuesday and Friday, Pastor Cal,(the Trikepreacher) will be available in the chapel area across the foyer from the Diamond Street entrance.


The Kitchen Garden...

        Our Kitchen Garden is the result of different ministries, operating from our building, working together. It was an idea of members of the Mondays at Noon bible 
study. Our garden is located just to the west of our parking  lots, during the growing season, and provides our Soup Kitchen with onions, lettuce, cucumbers, zucchinis, peppers, tomatoes, or anything else the kitchen staff requests us to grow. All of the produce is used to feed those who come to the building for lunch from our S. K. Cafe.
