Community Open Table, an outreach of Sunbury United Methodist Church, is typically held on the first Friday of every month when members of the church and other volunteers host a dinner for anyone who is struggling with poverty and needs a hot, nutritious meal.
With New Year’s Eve falling on Thursday evening this year, Community Open Table will be held on Friday, Jan. 8.
Community Open Table is held in the SUMC Fellowship Hall. Fellowship and appetizers are at 5 p.m. with dinner served at 5:30. Dinner is typically over at 7 p.m.
The meal is free. No reservations are needed. Just be there at 5 p.m. and enter the church through the lower level.
